August 2017- Monthly Update
August has seen us receive a steady flow of registrations were we continue to hit double figures. As we come to the end of the summer, I hope that everyone managed to enjoy the brief spells of good weather we’ve had.
It’s great to be able to let everyone know that another Airport has installed a Changing Places Toilet. Liverpool have installed a Changing Places toilet at the Liverpool John Lennon Airport, was registered this month.
Changing Places News
News from the Changing Places Consortium is that my, Joanne Connah has left the role of Changing Places Development Officer.
I was seconded over to work on the Campaign for 6months and agreed to extend the secondment for an extra 2months. I made the decision to go back to my role in Mencap as a support worker, as taking on this role has allowed me to see that my true passion lays in directly supporting individuals with LD.
During my 8 months of working on the Campaign I have become a passionate Campaigner and advocate of Changing Places Toilets. I will always remain passionate about the Campaign and an active campaigner within my local area.
I want to say a huge Thank you for the support received from everyone involved in Changing Places, whilst I was finding my feet and developing my knowledge of the Campaign. I feel extremely privileged knowing I got to Register the 1000th Changing Places Toilet and place it onto our Map.
We have been supporting and sharing the petition and campaign by Zack, to get Changing Places Toilets installed in all motorway service stations.
You can read more about his Campaign in Zack’s blog on our website.
