Get your continence back

Does bladder leakage stop you doing the things you love: playing with your children or grandchildren, socialising with friends or exercising?

Bladder leakage – no matter how light – is not normal and most cases can be cured or better managed. So get your confidence back by speaking with one of our friendly continence nurse advisors on the free National Continence Helpline 1800 33 00 66.

Promoting bladder and bowel health

More than 4.8 million Australians experience bladder or bowel control problems. The Continence Foundation of Australia's vision is to have a community free of the stigma of incontinence. We provide information on funding, referral and products. We also offer free resources for individuals, carers and professionals to help treat bladder and bowel control problems. Phone a nurse on 1800 33 00 66 for free advice.
