ERIC is the national charity dedicated to improving children’s bowel and bladder health.

It's our mission to get everyone talking openly about good bladder and bowel health; to empower children and carers with support, information and resources; to contribute to research and policy development and to deliver the best education and advice to those working with families.

For over thirty years, we’ve been providing information and emotional support to families about these common but often misunderstood conditions.

1 in 12 children in the U.K. are affected by a bowel or bladder condition. The impact on their life, and their family's, can be devastating.

The embarrassment and shame surrounding these continence problems, means that many young people and their family’s suffer in silence with no-one to turn to.

We’re here for families and through our services, provide a listening ear and understanding, giving families the information and support to make things better for their child.

Here’s what a parent had to say about the help and support they received...

“At a time when I didn’t really know where to turn, the brilliant help, support and resources of your whole organisation have been so incredibly valuable and appreciated by us”.

Leaving ERIC a special gift in your will means we can support children and teenagers affected by bowel and bladder issues for generations to come.
