Changing Places Awareness Day 2017


July 19th 2017 marks the second Changing Places Awareness Day and 11 years since the campaign began! The day is an opportunity to celebrate all that the campaign has achieved and help raise more awareness of the life changing difference Changing Places toilets make to peoples lives. This year is particularly important as we will soon be reaching the important landmark of having 1000 registered Changing Places toilets across the UK! 


How to get involved?

  • Spread the word! Let people know that on the 19th July you will be talking all things Changing Places toilets. You can do this by signing up to our Thunderclap which will launch at midday on the 19th.

  • We have prepared a press release that local Changing Places campaigners can use to spread awareness of their campaigning efforts in their local area.  

  • Snap a CPselfie! Take a photo of yourself in or near a Changing Places toilet or holding a sign about Changing Places. If you want to go further, why not print off Alison's amazing CPselfie kit or this special #CPAD version? You can challenge friends and family to do one too (make sure you share them with us too. 

  • Add a Changing Places Twibbon to your Twitter or Facebook profile picture. 

  • Take on a challenge to raise awareness of the need for more Changing Places toilets. Last year people ran, cycled and squatted to raise awareness of the need for more Changing Places. 

  • Tell us what you have planned! We would love to hear from anyone who has plans to mark Changing Places Awareness Day! Please get in touch and let us know

Need more inspiration? Check out what people got up to last year.
