Expertly written leaflets, guides, booklets, factsheets and charts to help with children's bowel and bladder problems. Our resources are based on the latest clinical research and recommendations. The materials are available below for you to download at no cost.

How to order printed guides

We can supply a limited number of printed guides (up to a maximum of 100 copies) free of charge to children's centres, health visitors, school nurses, GP surgeries, and other health and education services.

To order printed copies, please phone our customer service coordinator on 0117 301 2100, or email: orders@eric.org.uk.

We regret that we're unable to send out printed copies of the guides marked 'download only' and, due to our limited funding, we ask you to wait at least three months before placing another order.

Leaflet orders are packaged by volunteers and, due to high demand, may take up to a month to arrive.
