Please jump for ERIC because we rely on the support of people like you to support children and teenagers with bowel and bladder conditions.

1 in 12 children between the age of 5 and 19 are affected by a bowel or bladder problem such bed wetting, daytime wetting, constipation and soiling. Children with continence problems describe a sense of helplessness, feelings of being different from others, guilt and shame, humiliation, victimisation and loss of self-esteem. ERIC is the only charity in the UK dedicated to improving their lives. By equipping children and teenagers to address and overcome continence issues, the impact can be extraordinary: they regain control over their lives, feel happier and more confident, can take part in the same activities as their peers, and can reach their full potential.
