The impact of getting the right support and information to deal with a continence difficulty can be dramatic: children can start living a normal life, they can take part in social activities, they feel happier and more confident, and the strain on family life is lifted.
Speaking to an ERIC adviser was a lifeline. They gave such clear and helpful advice. It made a huge difference and we were able to get our daughter’s toilet problems under control. It’s changed our family life for the better and my daughter is so much happier now. (Parent, July 2020)
Watch some young people talking about the difference it can make when they can talk openly about their continence conditions.
