The idea of having a urinary diversion can be a bit daunting. You’ll be pleased to know that after an operation to form a urostomy, many people have few or no problems whatsoever. However, some do experience difficulties, and we hope that this page helps you understand some of the issues that may occur.

Our Boys need Bins campaign continues to go from strength to strength, as we call for male sanitary bins to be available in men’s toilets UK-wide. This way, men with incontinence can dispose of their sanitary waste easily, safely and with dignity.

Regular, monthly donations are crucial because life with a urinary diversion can feel daunting. It’s vital that people have somewhere to turn for reassurance, from diagnosis to living life to the full again. We provide that support, but can only do so with kind donations.
