WELCOME

The Victorian Continence Resource Centre works to promote continence for all Victorians. 1:4 people of all ages, cultures and backgrounds experience loss of bladder and/or bowel control referred to as incontinence. The majority of people do not seek help because of embarrassment, shame or thinking nothing can be done.

Our Vision: Speaking Up for Continence Health
Our Mission: Awareness, Prevention and Treatment
