Hi everyone

angela1972angela1972 Member Posts: 2 Listener
I'm Angela and just want to say hello and let you know about a government petition that is gathering momentum. A friend of mine has had enough of changing her children on the often dirty floors of toilets due to a lack of facilities and is petitioning the government to address this and change the law on this - please have a look and share if you wish to https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/177423

Thank you

    Hi Angela, 

    Have you heard of the Changing Places campaign

    "The Changing Places Consortium launched its campaign in 2006 on behalf of the over 1/4 of a million people who cannot use standard accessible toilets. This includes people with profound and multiple learning disabilities, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, as well as older people.

    To use the toilet in safety and comfort, many people need to be able to access a Changing Places, which have more space and the right equipment, including a height adjustable changing bench and a hoist."

    It might be worth your friend joining forces with them?
