The bare foot challenge…

Standard

Take a photo (of your feet) standing bare foot on your toilet floor – then share it on social media and add the hashtag #barefootchallenge to join in.

Petition and challenge information 
Nominate friends or do it yourself…. Find out why below.

Why?

Ever stood bare foot on your toilet floor? How about in a public toilet? Not quite so appealing is it? 

I have to be bare foot to be lifted onto a public toilet – so my shoes don’t create more drag. In a public toilet it’s pretty yucky.

Other disabled people have to lie down on the toilet floor for pad changes. 

Floor changing
 This challenge creates awareness and opportunity to sign a petition of support for change – in the form of more Changing Places toilets. These are toilets with a hoist, changing bench and space. They offer hygiene, dignity, safety and equality.

There are very few of these yet they are needed by hundreds of thousands of disabled people.
