Incontinence in children may be caused by a 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.

Bed wetting is a widespread and distressing condition which can significantly affect the child’s behaviour, emotional well being and social life. Children who wet the bed often fear sleepovers or school trips in case they are bullied or ridiculed, but also worry they will lose their friends if they refuse to attend. The use of enuresis (bed wetting) alarms can help to train the child to stay dry through the night which improves self esteem and quality of life.

The Macclesfield Bowel and Bladder Service are expanding the reach of their service with an extra nurse to cope with demand and therefore need more resources. They have asked for our help to fund equipment including enuresis alarms and a Playmobil bathroom set which helps children act out their feelings when unable to vocalize them. This extra continence equipment will greatly enhance the service provided to children in the Macclesfield area.

The total cost of fulfilling this project is £1829.72

“The new outdoor area will boost mood and morale, creating social opportunities in a safe space free from medical interventions and providing distraction from pain and illness. It offers play opportunities for siblings too, helping to normalise the hospital environment and bridge the gap between home and hospital.”
