We want a Changing Place for Norwich City FC

I am a Norwich City fan as are all of my family, I am also a Mum of a disabled child unfortunately these two things do not mix. My son needs a Changing Place (a disabled toilet with a bench and hoist), he is autistic with other mobility needs and still in nappies, at the age of 5 1/2 he is too big for baby changers so if we are out and he needs changing it is a toilet floor or the back of the car this is undignified and unhygienic for him and quite frankly my back doesn't appreciate the lifting that this process involves. The nearest Changing Place from Carrow Rd is a 30 minute walk, which would mean we could miss the majority of the match if we used this option. I contacted NCFC over a year ago via Twitter to ask for them to provide a Changing Place so we, as a family, could buy a season ticket and come to the home games, this wouldn't just benefit us but any disabled fan or guest to any of the other events/concerts that are held at Carrow Road. I have also suggested using a Mobiloo at home games too (Mobile Changing Place that is currently used by Chelsea on their home games). A changing Place is needed for those who cannot self transfer to a toilet (Which means they need to be hoisted from their chair to the bench, from the bench to the toilet and again in reverse), needs a bench to be toileted on or even needs somewhere to place their products what they need to use for this basic human need, there are varying disabilities that need this from congenital disabilities, life changing injuries and age related conditions I always quote "There but by the grace of God go I" as we are all potential users within minute , months or years. Because of everything I had mentioned above I ask that Norwich City FC supports my son, your fan, and provide a Changing Place and he will be proud to support our home team for years to come as will many others, now, his generation and generations to come with his and varying kinds of disabilities. Please help buy signing this petition and help us and many others enjoy watching our own team.
