Anna Ralls started this petition to The RAF and

Allow people with Coeliac Disease into the UK Armed Forces

Currently, anyone suffering with a gluten intolerance cannot join the UK armed forces. However the Army, Royal Navy and RAF cater for those requiring Halal, Kosher and Vegetarian meals. This is discrimination against a non-life threatening food intolerance which can easily be dealt with.

Proposal: To allow sufferers of coeliac disease to join any of the UK forces PROVIDING they sign a disclaimer in the event they may suffer symptoms, or view each case for joining on a case by case basis as symptoms can vary.

I have wanted to join the RAF since a young age and now my dreams could be crushed. Coeliacs make up 1% of the population ( with a potential  97% living undiagnosed ) so a large majority who want to get in to the armed forces can choose to not get diagnosed at a risk of their health which is worse than the forces spending a small amount of money to cater for us.

Thank you so much for the support
