Can’t Wait is a scheme run by SGDEN with assistance from South Glos Council to encourage businesses to make their toilets available to disabled people with an urgent need.

We created a local, credit card-sized ‘Can’t Wait’ Card, for individuals to show to businesses, with a request to allow them to use staff or non-public toilets, or to use customer toilets without purchasing anything.

Card holders will obtain their cards from voluntary organisations/NHS services involved with the scheme.

Businesses are asked to sign up to the scheme and display a postcard in their windows, to show people that they are supporting the initiative.

Benefits of being involved

  • A great way to show community involvement

  • Research shows that many people with health conditions base their decisions of where to go on how confident they feel that they will have access to toilets
