Access to a toilet when you need it

Having access to a toilet is a basic human right.

We all need to use the bathroom when we leave the house, and some of us may need to go more often or more urgently than others. For many of us the lack of toilets is a difficult reality of daily life. It can lead to us staying at home more for fear of being caught short.

The problem is getting worse. We have lost nearly 60% of public toilets since 2010 – largely due to cuts in council budgets.
