Championing Changing Places Together

Without Changing Places toilets, almost a quarter of a million people in the UK struggle to visit places that many take for granted as they are often unable to use standard disabled/accessible toilets.  This is because they need more space for wheelchairs and care givers as well as extra equipment such as a hoist and adjustable changing bench.

There are currently less than 1,000 Changing Places facilities in the whole of the UK and Aveso want to see them become standard in all publically accessible venues and you can help.

Changing Places, Changing Lives

There are so many ways you can help to support the Changing Places Campaign with Aveso and we’ve put together some useful campaigner tools full of tips and ideas to help you start your own campaigning journey.

Some people choose to start fundraising whilst others join the conversation and target organisations online through Social Media.

Another way to get your voice heard is through a petition.  Many Changing Places campaigners have set up petitions which have gained momentum and seen changes happen as a result.

Below are just a few of the online petitions to take a look at which have gained thousands of supporters.
