My Bigger Nappy Campaign / Tesco Junior Nappies

In January 2016, I started a Change petition asking all UK supermarkets to sell or manufacture bigger nappies for children with disabilities.

I started the petition when Brody was 4 years old and had outgrown supermarket sizes, frustrated that bigger brands were only available online and with a disability price tag. I discovered through speaking to other parents and carers that the continence service is a bit of a postcode lottery. actors like referral age, waiting time and the number of nappies that a family receives varies depending on where you live. The demand for bigger nappies will always be there – either because people are ineligible for the continence service or because they need to ‘top up’ the number of nappies that they receive.

Shortly after starting the petition, Tesco got in touch and several years were spent developing Tesco Junior Nappies, which were launched on 29th October 2018. It’s a product that I’m really proud to have played a part in the development of.

This was our social advert for them.
