Making A Difference: Changing Places Campaign Raised In House Of Commons

Just weeks after presenting the Sudocrem Changing Rooms Award to The Usual Place in Dumfries, in partnership with PAMIS (Promoting A More Inclusive Society), the topic is back on the news agenda and creating a stir in the House of Commons.

On the 27th June 2018, Paula Sherriff MP introduced a 10-minute rule bill, supporting Changing Places, at the House of Commons. The bill asked for Changing Places Toilets to be made mandatory in all large new buildings.

“We’re fully behind this bill and the Changing Places Campaign”, says Nick Lang, UK Head of Marketing Teva OTC. “Sudocrem are proud to be at the forefront of activity to improve facilities for disabled children. Our award scheme recognises the people and places leading the way, but more needs to happen and that’s why this bill is so important”.
