Changing Places News

News from the Changing Places Consortium is that my, Joanne Connah has left the role of Changing Places Development Officer.

I was seconded over to work on the Campaign for 6months and agreed to extend the secondment for an extra 2months. I made the decision to go back to my role in Mencap as a support worker, as taking on this role has allowed me to see that my true passion lays in directly supporting individuals with LD.

During my 8 months of working on the Campaign I have become a passionate Campaigner and advocate of Changing Places Toilets. I will always remain passionate about the Campaign and an active campaigner within my local area.

 

I want to say a huge Thank you for the support received from everyone involved in Changing Places, whilst I was finding my feet and developing my knowledge of the Campaign. I feel extremely privileged knowing I got to Register the 1000th Changing Places Toilet and place it onto our Map.
