Introduction

It is estimated that there are at least 500,000 children throughout the UK who suffer from bedtime wetting, over 125,000 children with daytime wetting and 100,000 children who regularly experience faecal incontinence and soiling.

For children, young people and their families this can be emotionally distressing, causing anxiety, embarrassment, guilt and social exclusion.

Most children grow out of childhood incontinence, but for those with continuing symptoms help is available, which can greatly improve and potentially solve these issues. Our aim is that as many children as possible achieve continence.

Some children with additional needs may not achieve this, but we aim to support them and their parents to manage this by providing products, where necessary.
