It could be YOU!

No, not winning the lottery – that is quite unlikely.

Becoming disabled.

That can happen to anyone. No ticket required and no age restrictions.

There was a time when I had no idea about the importance of lowered kerbs.
There was a time when I had no idea about the need for ramped access.
There was a time when I would not have thought about the width of a doorway.
There was a time when I had no idea about the importance of accessible toilets.

Why would I have known? I didn’t need them.

Maybe if I had known a decade ago, I might have done something then.

I wish I had.

You still have time.

And now you know.

So you have a chance to improve things before you need them.

dignity

If you could no longer stand up, just how would you use the toilet?

Should you just stay at home?

Should you accept that you don’t matter?

It could be you.

So don’t wait.

Help to raise these issues now. 

Don’t wait till you need them.

If you wait till you need them you might wish you hadn’t.

    1. Thank you. There is a petition for these facilities. It is in my “No Go Britain” post. Sharing the petition is also a big help. Sorry, I am using my phone and pasting links isn’t easy on it. Not moved into the modern age of the Iphone yet!
