Welcome to the
COB Foundation website

Nobody likes to talk about their bladder, but when things are wrong, talking to someone with knowledge, understanding and caring is exactly what you need. Here at the COB Foundation, we have been offering sufferers help and advice for the past twenty years. Over that time, we have helped thousands of people find ways to manage their condition.

Whilst many conditions are incurable, we endeavour to help patients reach a point where their condition can be managed successfully so that they can lead a relatively normal life. We have developed a range of resources based on our extensive experience working with patients which can really help improve their condition.

As a charity, we rely entirely on donations and a membership scheme. Members pay a small contribution to help fund the confidential advice line, forum and other resources. In return, they receive a comprehensive patient pack, 3 dedicated magazines per year and further on-going support from our caring, knowledgeable staff, who treat every patient with the respect and understanding they deserve.

To find out more about membership and how we can help you to manage your symptoms, please call 0121 702 0820 or visit the Membership page
