Changing Places Awareness Day

The Changing Places campaign was officially launched in July 2006. In celebration, the Consortium decided to make July 19th an annual awareness day for the campaign. Changing Places Awareness day is all about celebrating all that the campaign has achieved to date thanks to the dedicated support of all our incredible campaigners.

It is also an opportunity to help raise more vital awareness of the life changing difference Changing Places toilets make to peoples lives - not just in the UK but around the world!
