Continence Resource Centre

The Continence Resource Centre (CRC) is a state-wide continence information and advisory service located at the Independent Living Centre (ILC).

There are many different causes of incontinence, and much can be done to improve or cure incontinence problems.

Continence Resource Centre services

The Centre is staffed by a registered nurse who provides information and advice on bladder and bowel problems. Our services include:

  • information and advice on continence management and services
  • a product display including toileting equipment and adaptive clothing
  • fact sheets, brochures, videos, CDs and books
  • health promotion activities
  • education sessions and seminars.

We also promote activities such as Continence Awareness Week each August.

Information and services are available to all community members, including people with disabilities, carers, their families and health professionals. Equipment and products to help with continence can be seen in the online catalogue.

The Continence Resource Centre is affiliated with the Continence Foundation of Australia that provides information, research, project support and literature for distribution in the community.

Contacting Continence Resource Centre staff

You will need to book an appointment to make sure the registered nurse is available when you visit.
