Continence Awareness Week 15-21 June 2020

This Continence Awareness Week, 15 to 21 June 2020, Matilda Green is encouraging New Zealanders who need to talk about their continence to reach out to us and have a 'wee chat'. You can watch her video message below.

It is crucial that we have upfront conversations about continence, and to help kick-start conversations we have several ‘wee chat’ on-demand videos featuring experts on a range of continence topics. You can watch these below:
