Train organisations in Scotland are supporting a schoolgirl’s campaign to raise awareness of ‘invisible’ disabilities.
Scotrail is just one of the operators that has installed ‘Grace’s Sign’ at accessible toilets in its stations across Scotland.
Grace’s Sign is a bathroom sign that includes both a person in a wheelchair and a standing person with a heart, symbolising people with invisible conditions.
Thirteen-year-old Grace Warnock, who has Crohn’s Disease, came up with the idea for a more inclusive sign after facing criticism from strangers when she used accessible toilets.
The signs can also be found at other locations across the country including at the Scottish Parliament, V&A Dundee and St. Enoch shopping centre in Glasgow.
