Centre’s backing forloos signage
EK, East Kilbride is backing an inspirational campaign by a teenager to recognise ‘invisible’ disabilities.
The shopping and leisure centre is the latest organisation to install signage on its accessible toilets that has been specially-designed by Grace Warnock.
The 13-year-old, who was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease aged nine, became frustrated when she faced criticism for using disabled toilets and so decided to do something about it.
The award-winning Edinburgh schoolgirl’s creative design – which clearly shows that not all disabilities are ‘visible’ – is now being used in multiple locations, including the Scottish Parliament.
Centre director Ian McLelland said: “Grace has campaigned tirelessly over the past few years and as a result has helped to change perceptions and improve the lives of those with disabilities across Scotland. ‘Grace’s Sign’ is a truly inspirational initiative and EK, East Kilbride is delighted to give its backing to the campaign.”
The signage is now on all shopping centre toilets.
