Incontinence: A problem in anyone's language

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 weak bladder, leakage, constipation and bedwetting. Phone a nurse on 1800 33 00 66 for free advice.
