Continence issues, whether they are bladder or bowel related, can affect people at any stage in life and can vary in their severity depending on the condition. Although many continence issues can occur naturally, they can also be triggered by an event or situation in your life, such as a surgery, pregnancy or accident. Some of these situations can be short term but more severe incidents can leave people with lifelong continence problems. Despite the existence of numerous treatments which aim to better manage symptoms and in some cases even cure the condition, continence problems can have a big impact on quality of life and many people continue to suffer in silence.

Our bladder support programme is suitable for all those who are living with continence issues, whether you have been newly diagnosed or you have been living with the condition for some time, and the carers of someone who has continence issues.

If you would like to take part in the continence patient support programme once it has launched, please do register your interest by filling out our quick expression of interest form.
