If you need a laugh, watch this video.
I laughed so much the first time I saw it. And the second!
When you have kids it happens! And it happens in restaurants, at the supermarket, in bed and at all sorts of inconvenient times.
But how would Jonathan Ross and the others in this video cope if it was their 10 year old, or their 15 year old or their 34 year old and they had no way of lifting them and nowhere to lay them down to clean up?
How would they feel if it happened just because there were no toilets in the whole town and their child was mortified by it? Because that is the reality faced by hundreds of thousands of disabled people.
Some people need a hoist and bench to get on the toilet or for changing purposes. Can you imagine the horror of needing to go, yet there being no way to access a toilet? Or, worse still, being unable to hold on and having no way to get cleaned up. Imagine catching the bus home like this.
It suddenly isn’t funny any more.
Poo is normal. Let’s help all people poo with dignity!
Please support the campaign for Changing Places toilets. Ask your local council to support it. Ask at tourist attractions, service stations, theatres and any place where you would reasonably expect to need the toilet.
When you see Changing Places toilets mentioned in the news, add your support.
Wouldn’t you want these facilities to be available if it was you who needed them?
One day it could be you.
And then it won’t be funny any more!
