Do you want a local business or your local council to install a Changing Places toilet? This is your place to be!
You can start by sending a letter to the place you want to see a Changing Places toilet installed. If you know the person responsible, address it to them. If not, don’t worry! You can send it to the business and it will still reach the person responsible. We have drafted a suggested letter that you can edit, and you can download the letter here.
If you receive a reply that you feel is unsatisfactory, don’t be afraid to reply. We can help you to put together a strong response if you feel you need some extra input. Remember, change often happens slowly, so don’t be disheartened if it takes a little longer than you expected.
You can also write to your local MP, asking them to write to the Government on your behalf about the need for Changing Places toilets. Find out who your local MP is by visiting Theyworkforyou and entering your postcode. You can download and edit a letter to your MP here.
When asking for change, remember to be positive. Decision makers love it when people come to them with solutions, so be sure to offer a few suggestions for them to pick from.
If you don’t get any joy, you can always go one step further and have a social media campaign. Sometimes, a little friendly public pressure can go a long way to getting things done. We can help you with putting together petitions, or you could ask to meet local decision makers to show them personally the difference a Changing Places toilet would make for disabled people. Don’t forget to use the #FitToBurst hashtag in your Twitter and Facebook posts!
