Changing Places Consortium Meeting
Changing Places Consortium Meeting September 2014: Over 664 Changing Places Now Installed
As official co-sponsor of The Changing Places Campaign, OpeMed joined the Changing Places Consortium to discuss the progress made during 2014 as well as the plans for future campaigning. The Changing Places Consortium was formed in 2006 and consists of a number of members from backgrounds in social care, nursing, activism etc to deliver a wealth of expertise for Changing Places moving forward.
Amongst the successes of some of the UK’s largest retailers, airports and stadiums installing Changing Places we have developed an ever increasing presence in the UK’s media with thanks to supportive organisations and campaigners during 2014. Events such as The Loo Tour, The Big Squat and Changing Places opening events have helped to raise vital awareness, campaigner numbers and funds for The Changing Places Campaign.
As Aveso (OpeMed and Astor Bannerman) enter into another year as the official sponsor of Changing Places, we have plans to increase campaigner involvement, event management for openings and build further relationships with key decision makers for more Changing Places in the UK.
