This month Sudocrem have launched their Changing Room Awards, which has been designed to recognise the best changing rooms around the country
It can be a nightmare for any parent to find suitable facilities to change them. It can be even more of a challenge with Disabled Children.
There are 800,000 disabled children in the UK. However there are only 1058 Changing Places toilets. Therefore it means parents with disabled children are frequently forced to change their children on the toilet floor.
Due to his Sudocrem have added a new category to their awards. They are highlighting the importance of Changing Places toilets for disabled children.
Since 2012, Sudocrem has campaigned for change with an award scheme to recognise the importance of good nappy changing facilities. Past winners have included Mothercare, John Lewis, Sainsbury’s and the National Museums of Scotland.
Sudocrem want to show that baby changing rooms are important and often over-looked. Now they are also ready to tackle the issue of facilities for disabled children. Working with the charity PAMIS (Promoting A More Inclusive Society) to highlight the Changing Places facilities that organisations.
There are three categories for this year’s award scheme:
· Baby Changing Room of the Year
· Dad’s Changing Room
· Changing Places Toilet (in association with PAMIS)
If you would like to nominate a changing room for the award, then let us know which changing room. Also why you want to nominate it, preferably include a photo on Facebook via the Sudocrem website. www.sudocrem.co.uk/social-hub or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Entries will be judged by the NCT, PAMIS and Sudocrem. The closing date for entries is the end of march 2018. The winners will be announced at the end of the same month.
The winning facilities will receive an engraved plaque. Everyone who nominates their favourite facilities will also be entered in to a prize draw. The prize is short break at a family friendly hotel.
