ERIC

ERIC, The Children’s Bowel and Bladder Charity, provides practical and emotional support to children and teenagers affected by continence issues (toilet training, bedwetting, daytime wetting, constipation and soiling), their families and the professionals who look after them. We want to create an environment where every child and teenager with a bowel or bladder condition can access support and live free from embarrassment, shame, isolation and fear.

Connor struggled with bedwetting until he was 19

Told by his doctor to wait to grow out of it, Connor had no idea his condition could be treated until he found ERIC while looking for support online. “It's nerve-wracking being featured in the media and people finding out. But I suppose it's the only way to start breaking down stigma. I’m excited and very pleased that by sharing my story I might help other young people.”

One mother said: “The advisor I spoke to at ERIC helped me through a really dark time we were experiencing as a family. She was supportive and informative, she really eased our feeling of loneliness”.

ERIC’s family support days

Parents and carers hear from ERIC’s helpline advisors about managing and treating continence issues during a workshop. These sessions give families a chance to get peer-to-peer support and reassurance that they aren’t alone.
