Beating Bowel Cancer has joined with other charities and interest groups to form the Toilet Consortium UK. The aims of the Consortium include

  • Raising public awareness of the importance of access to public toilets for those affected by bowel cancer and other bowel and bladder conditions
  • Highlighting the impact of the closure of public toilets on these groups
  • Identifying initiatives that the Consortium can undertake to help those its member organisations represent.

Availability and accessibility of toilets can be a major issue for those affected by bowel cancer: your views are important in setting the priorities for the campaign so we’d be really grateful if you would take a few minutes to complete a survey, which you can access here.

The survey will remain open until September 28, 2017 and we’ll report back on next steps for the Consortium during October.

Members of the Consortium include

  • Beating Bowel Cancer
