  • Encourage your local high street to adopt our signage – Call on your local independent companies to change their accessible toilet sign using the materials in our campaign supporter pack, available to download here.
  • Tell your story online if you are faced with stigma – If you, or someone close to you, have been challenged when trying to use an accessible toilet, join us in highlighting that this is unacceptable, and share your story on social media using #NotEveryDisabilityIsVisible and tagging @CrohnsColitisUK.
  • It Takes Guts to talk about Crohn's or Colitis - Explain to others that you have an invisible condition which means you need quick access to the toilet; help the public understand the severity of the conditions and how they impact almost every aspect of people’s lives.
