Blackpool Paediatric Continence Service provides community care for upward of 500+ children in schools, Clinics and their own homes. Incontinence in children may be caused by physical disability, a learning difficulty, or psychological or social problems.

Bedwetting is a widespread and distressing condition which can significantly affect the child’s behaviour, emotional wellbeing and social life. Children who wet the bed at night often fear sleepovers or school trips in case they are bullied or ridiculed. They also worry they will be excluded and lose their friends if they refuse to attend.

The Blackpool Paediatric Continence Team have asked for our help to fund resources including enuresis (bedwetting) alarms, wobl watches and picture books to help children learn how their body works.

This equipment will prove to be a great resource to the team as they are reusable and often avoid the need for the child to be prescribed ongoing medications.

The total cost of fulfilling this project is £485.53

“The switch adapted toys have been a wonderful addition to our school. Both staff and children were thrilled to have some new exciting resources. The children love the lights and movement many of these switch toys have and are highly motivated to explore and investigate how to make them work. They have been great for pupils to develop their understanding of cause and effect and we have also noticed improved concentration and engagement when using them. Often it can be difficult to find toys that are robust enough to withstand lots of heavy use AND be interesting and fun. These new resources tick all those boxes. They have made a noticeable impact on the children’s development in this area.”
