Sharron Gibson

Earlier this month we were sad to say goodbye to Sharron Gibson, who has worked as an advisor on our bowel and bladder helpline for the last eight years. During her time at ERIC, Sharron has been a much valued listening ear to thousands of families desperate for help with their child’s continence problem.

One caller recently left the following feedback: “Sharron was so kind and lovely and she made me feel less stressed about the issue and gave me the confidence and advice to tackle the problem.” Another parent fedback: “I spoke to Sharon at the helpline today who was kind, patient and understanding throughout and helped me form a plan to progress my boys. You provide a truly wonderful and responsive service.”

Juliette Randall, ERIC CEO said “Sharron has been a big part of the ERIC team for a long time and her contribution will be hugely missed. In particular it will be hard to replace her warmth, humour and her sense of empathy with the many families she has supported over the years. We wish Sharron and her husband John all the very best as they embark on their exciting career change: working together as wardens for the Caravan and Motorhome Club”.

Looking to the future

We are delighted to welcome Amy Barber who will be joining our helpline team and working on our early interventions project – supporting families with potty training. Amy says: “As a mum of two young children, potty training is very familiar to me currently and I have picked up lots of useful tips already working here! I am excited to help support the team here at ERIC and help to continue with the charity’s success."
