    Derbyshire Children’s Continence Service Level 2

    We are a small nurse led community service working within Derby City and Derbyshire. We support children and young people 4-18 years (19 years if in a special school), with continence needs.

    There is a lot of self-help that parents/carers can use to support their child/young person’s continence needs. Please see the links below:

     

     

    ERIC is a national charity for children and young people with continence needs.
