Five years ago the National Childbirth Trust launched its first Baby Changing Room Awards. This year Sudocrem Britain’s leading nappy cream brand is pioneering the way with a new category to recognise the imprtance of Changing Places toilets for disabled children.
Today in the UK there are 800,000 disabled children, but only 1058 Changing Places toilets to meet thie needs, which means for a lot of parents they are forced to change their children on a toilet floor, once their child/ren get too big for the baby changing tables.
Since 2012, Sudocrem has campaigned for change with an award scheme to recognise the importance of good nappy changing facilities. Past winners have included Mothercare, John Lewis, Sainsbury’s and the National Museums of Scotland.
This year there are three categories for the award scheme
Baby Changing Room of the Year
Dad’s Changing Rooms
Changing Places Toilet (in association with PAMIS)
Entries will be judged by the NCT, PAMIS and Sudocrem. The closing date for entries is 31st March 2018.
The winning facilities will receive an engraved plaque. Everyone who nominates their favourite facilities will also be entered in to a prize draw for the chance to win a short break at a family friendly hotel.
In addition to the above, Sudocrem are offering one of my lucky readers a chance to win a BabyMel Frankie Tweed Changing Bag worth £58, as a thank you for your time in nominating.
Due to the popularity of the nominations, the closing date for nominations has been moved to 31st March 2018.
