About ERIC

ERIC was started by the Children’s Society in 1988 and we are the only UK childhood continence charity.

We work to improve the quality of life of children, young people and their families in the UK who suffer from the consequences of wetting and soiling difficulties, to help them manage or overcome these problems. We believe that no child or young person should suffer unnecessarily because of a wetting or soiling problem. 


ERIC provides information, support and resources to children, young people and their families and health professionals on bladder and bowel problems.
