About ERIC

We are a community that supports families with children or teenagers who have bowel and/or bladder problems (including potty training, bedwetting, daytime wetting and constipation/soiling). Please feel free to ask our members any questions you might have about these conditions or to share your own experience of managing a continence problem in childhood or adolescence.

Most of our members are parents but we do also have some young people who contribute. Whatever your situation, we hope you feel welcome here.

If you would like to speak to an expertly trained continence advisor, please call the helpline run by ERIC, The Children's Bowel & Bladder Charity on 0808 169 9949. The telephone helpline is open Monday to Thursday 10am - 2pm and calls are free from landline and mobiles.
