For Families and Carers : Nappies – getting free nappies

If your child is still in nappies after the age of 3, you may be able to get free nappies or incontinence pads for them. In some areas, you may not be able to get them until your child is older than 3. You may not be able to get as many as you need.

Ask your GP, health visitor or your local continence service.
