Incontinence in children may be caused by physical disability, a learning difficulty, or psychological or social problems. Most NHS Trusts run a Paediatric Continence Service with a dedicated specialist team or through the community nursing team. They work with children and their families providing care and advice to help children gain control of their bladder and bowel.

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 Glasgow Paediatric Continence Team have asked for our help to fund resources including enuresis (bedwetting) alarms, child friendly toilet seats to encourage children to use the toilet during the day and picture books to help children learn how their body works.

This equipment will greatly enhance the service provided to children in the Glasgow area.

“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.”
