Like many of our customers I am a carer. I care for my grandparents who suffer from Alzheimer’s and incontinence. I had problems finding the products I needed and found the existing websites for incontinence products difficult to use.
My brother is a computer genius, and he knew the problems I was having. We decided that we could create a website that was much easier to use, and to make buying incontinence products online a far better experience.
I am Jenny, mother of 3 and original founder of Every Nappy, thank you for your interest in our site.

Support through Sport UK
Support through Sport UK is aiming to do six things:-
- To raise awareness of the many sporting opportunities (clubs, initiatives etc.) that exist across the United Kingdom for the traditionally low-participation groups – so disabled people, older people, women, young people and people who are looking to use sport to help them rehabilitate. Currently, approx. 400 clubs have registered their details onto the site.
- In the long-term, to encourage local Community Workers (e.g. Youth Offending Team Officers) to link up with local Sports Coaches / Leaders and vice versa. Support through Sport UK believes that fostering such relationships will encourage sport to be used to help people who are faced with adversity (by making clubs more inclusive, by using sport as part of rehabilitation programmes etc.).
- To profile inspiring sports clubs and sporting events.
- To interview famous sports stars and unsung sports charity workers to understand why they think sport’s so great and to learn what benefits they believe sport can bring.
- To raise awareness of some of the more unusual sports that you can get involved in.
- To raise awareness of the various companies that sell bespoke sports equipment for younger athletes, disabled athletes, older athletes etc.
