Teenagers and young people

The following pages contain advice and information for teenagers and young people living with bowel and bladder conditions.

The advice in these pages were created by young people with real life experience of living with and managing chronic bladder and bowel conditions.

We've based our information on the issues they said matter to them the most: how to get the right help and support, deciding who to tell about a problem and how to deal with it at home and at school.

Information and resources to help when you are talking to medical professionals and services.

Advice from young people about sharing information about your condition with friends.

Going on a school trip or sleepover? Don't panic! Find out what you can do to manage your bowel or bladder condition away from home.

Advice from other young people about how to manage transitions from primary to secondary and manage your condition at school and college.

A group of young people have worked together to share their experiences and helped to create these pages. Find out more about their project.
