This week is World Continence Week, an annual campaign to raise awareness of continence. The theme this year, Incontinence – no laughing matter, tackles a common response by people to laugh off incontinence. However, it’s a big issue for older people. Wouldn’t it be great if the stigma surrounding incontinence was shaken a little?

Yesterday, I went to NO NEGATIVE, an exhibition of winning photographs that are challenging and stimulating debate around perceptions of ageing. The photos were all entries in a photo competition launched by the Age Action Alliance last September, to mark the second anniversary of the Alliance.
