    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    We want to install a state of the art changing place facility at Longdown Activity Farm in Ashurst for all visitors with additional needs. We need to raise £15,000 to cover the equipment needed for this facility, including a ceiling tracking hoist, adult-sized changing bed and peninsular toilet (that allows a carer either side) to enable children and adults with any disability or condition to access the toilet safely and in a dignified manner and avoid them having to be changed on the floor.

    My son Hadley has Cerebral Palsy. He is a wheelchair user and needs a lot of physical support with all aspects of his life. As a result of his condition, he needs to wear nappies and may do so for the rest of his life. He regularly faces the undignified situation of being changed on dirty toilet floors because standard disabled toilets do not cater for his needs.

    The aim is to have a facility ready for when the farm reopens on 13 February 2016.

    All money raised will be used to help provide essential equipment and toilet facilities at Longdown Activity Farm.

      Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so generously to our 'Changing Places' toilet and changing facility project at Longdown Activity Farm. We cannot thank you enough. We are currently working hard to get the facility installed and up and running as soon as possible, and look forward to inviting you all to see it in due course. You are helping us do something incredibly special for so many families who visit farm. By providing equipment such as a hoist and adult-sized height-adjustable changing bed, we are enabling those with disabilities and additional needs to be changed and to access the toilet with the dignity they deserve, everywhere they go. Longdown Activity Farm is really leading the way, showing other attractions and venues how to be truly inclusive and accessible - True Heroes! Sarah XXX
