Accessible toilet signs: Not every disability is visible

We’re campaigning to change accessible toilet signage across the UK to help raise awareness that not every disability is visible and to improve the quality of life for those with Crohn’s or Colitis.

Far too many people with hidden disabilities feel stigmatised or are directly challenged when using accessible toilets, with 49% in a recent study saying that they received negative comments from a stranger, just for using the facilities they need. 

Small sign – Big difference - 
Inspiration for the Not every disability is visible campaign is credited to the many people living with Crohn’s or Colitis; notably 11-year-old Grace Warnock. Grace’s Sign can be found in many national locations, including the Scottish Parliament and Edinburgh Airport. 

For the first phase of our campaign, Supermarkets, we targeted the UK’s largest supermarkets with 100% success rate!

Travel with IBD, our next phase of the campaign, has already been hugely successful and our signs can now be found in airports, train stations and service stations all over the country. 

And we’re not stopping there!

We aim to change publicly available toilet signs in high footfall areas across the country such as major food and retail outlets to raise awareness that IBD is a largely hidden or invisible condition and that not every disability is visible.
