Our Current Campaigns

Mencap campaigns to ensure that people with a learning disability are valued equally listened to and included. We want everyone to have the opportunity to achieve the things they want out of life. We work with people with a learning disability to change laws and services and challenge prejudice. Find out more about Mencap’s campaigns to make rights a reality for people with a learning disability.

Changing Places

This Campaign is fighting for fully accessible toilets in public places.

Standard disabled toilets do not meet the needs of thousands of people, including 40,000 people with profound and multiple learning disabilities.

Without adequate facilities, families have to change the person they care for on a cramped and dirty toilet floor. The alternative is to limit outings to a few short hours, or not go out at all.

Changing Places toilets have a height-adjustable changing bench, a hoist and plenty of space.
