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!
