The Bladder and Bowel Foundation
The Bladder and Bowel Foundation (B&BF) is a UK-based charity that offers information and support services for adults, aged 18 years and over, on a range of bladder and bowel continence related conditions and symptoms.
The charity works in partnership with a number of key organisations in order to fulfill its strategic aims, including the continuous improvement of care for people living with bladder and bowel related conditions, whilst promoting awareness amongst the public and medical profession.
B&BF has been working in partnership with Astellas Pharma Ltd. over the past 3 years, on the largest awareness campaign of its type in the UK. This high profile work allows the charity to continue providing practical support to around 7 million people living in the UK with overactive bladder (OAB).1
OAB is a condition that can affect anyone, at any age and from any walk of life. By working in partnership with Astellas, the B&BF are able to continue their work to help remove the taboo associated with OAB and help to make a difference in the level of care for those experiencing the condition.
In addition to OAB, B&BF provides support for people living with other bladder and bowel continence related conditions. Whether it's stress urinary incontinence, faecal incontinence or difficulty in urinating, you will find information to help you regain some control of your life from the charity's website.
If you, or someone you care for, are affected by bowel problems, you will also find supporting information that could help ease symptoms and treatment options that may help you improve your quality of life.
B&BF is not funded by Government or the NHS, and relies solely on the generous financial support of companies and individuals to support its work. If you would like to support the charity in their work, and to access detailed online resources, please register your support on the website by accessing the Support Us section for more information.
