B&BF launches new look Just Can't Wait toilet card

B&BF has unveiled its new look Just Can't Wait toilet card which now carries what is considered to be a universally accepted generic toilet image. The use of this new image should help reduce any embarrassment the holder may feel when presenting the card and ensure there is no confusion about the purpose of the card.

The clearly defined 'toilet' image is one that is frequently seen on toilets throughout the world and may also help people access facilities in situations where English may not be the first spoken language.

Finding a toilet when away from home remains a primary focus of many people affected by a bladder or bowel problem. Unfortunately it is also one of the reasons why so many cut down on social activities and in some cases stop going out altogether.

Whilst B&BF's toilet card does not guarantee you access to a toilet that may not otherwise be available to the general public, it does state the holder has a medical condition and needs to use the toilet quickly. In our experience most places you visit will be willing to help.

The card is a small, credit sized card, designed to fit easily into your purse, wallet or pocket. It can help boost confidence and offer you some peace of mind when away from home. Please use your card when you're out shopping and socialising and it could help you gain access to a toilet. Do let us know if you have any problems.

If you would like one of the new cards please visit our toilet card page and complete the online application form. As a national charity reliant on donations to fund and continue our work, we do ask that you make a donation of £5 towards the cost of producing the card and sending it out.

If you prefer not to apply for a card online, you can request one by phone, email or letter. Please visit the main toilet card page for more information.
