Age Cymru Day of Action - Wednesday 16th November 2011
Public toilets are an essential part of our communities. They are vital to ensure that people retain their dignity, and the confidence to participate in community life. Poor public toilet provision can reduce many people’s ability to remain active and restricts how often, and for how long, they are able to leave their homes.
Public toilets in Wales are increasingly at risk of closure. The British Toilet Association estimates that the UK’s public toilets have declined by over 40% in the last decade. The Welsh Senate of Older People thinks this is wrong and needs to be addressed. We want people of all ages and all abilities across Wales to be confident that they will be able to find a toilet, when needed, if away from their home.
Day of Action
Wednesday 16th November 2011
The Welsh Senate of Older People is holding a Day of Action on Wednesday 16th November 2011 at 10am at the Senedd, Cardiff Bay. On the day we will hold a rally between 10am and 11am on the steps of the Senedd to give as many people as possible the opportunity to show their support for our campaign.
We need your help! We need to get as many people as possible to join the rally.
We want as many people as possible to come along and lobby the National Assembly for Wales, so that real improvements to public toilets are seen in communities across Wales.
If you would like to attend the Day of Action please contact Kathy Lye on 029 2043 1555 or via email at email@example.com for full details of the day.
