Sudocrem paving the way for Changing Places – Sudocrem Changing Room Awards 2018

When you think of nappy cream, the majority of the time Sudocrem is the first thing that pops to mind. Sudocrem as a brand has been used for generations but whether you are a first time mum or a baby expert, you know how important baby changing is. In particular changing rooms.  Most public places now have a changing room but what happens when you have a disabled child?

I have spoken about Changing Places before here on my blog so to hear that Sudocrem have added a Changing Places category to their 2018 Sudocrem Changing Room Awards is amazing and it shows to me that things are beginning to change for children with disabilities.

Changing Places are a clean, large changing room fitted with a hoist and an adjustable bench. This is a life saver for both children and adults with disabilities as without Changing Places  many disabled people are forced to be changed on the filthy, small changing room floors.

In the UK, there are over 800,000 disabled children but there are only 1058 Changing Places. Sudocrem is working along side PAMIS ‘Promoting A More Inclusive Society’ to highlight the importance of businesses  having a Changing Places facility. As well as a Changing Places category there are also awards for the Best Changing Room and the Best Dad’s Changing Room.

As someone who works hard to promote awareness for people with disabilities, I would like to thank Sudocrem for highlighting the importance Changing Places and making more people aware that these kinds of facilities do exists!

  1. This is such an important issue. I read quite a few articles about this recently and it seems so unfair that people with disabilities are often waiting for bathrooms because of the baby change being in the same toilet. You’d think in this day and age we could either separate them or just make sure there are more of them!

  2. I have read quite a few articles on this lately and I will be honest, its not something I had ever thought about before. Now when I am in changing places, I find myself looking around at how small they can be and I do now wonder how people manage. It is definitely something that needs to be addressed.

  3. This is such a important topic. I generally hate having to use changing tables for babies in a disabled toilet because I find it so unfair! I always check to make sure that if someone is waiting to use the disabled toilet, to let them go first. It must be undignifying to go to a toilet and find you can’t use it because of lack of hoists and other care facilities.

  5. This is so important! I’ve only been using changing rooms for 2 months now but some are horrific whilst overs are amazing! But I’ve never once seen any equipment to change/help disabled adults or older children!
    Much love, Caitylis x x
