SIGNAGE for accessible toilets, created by a Prestonpans schoolgirl, is being displayed in train stations across Scotland.

ScotRail has become the latest organisation to support Grace Warnock’s campaign to raise awareness of ‘invisible’ disabilities.

Grace’s Sign, which she created, features both a person in a wheelchair and a standing person with a heart, symbolising people with invisible conditions.

Preston Lodge High School pupil Grace, 13, 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 innovative signs have been adopted at other locations across the country, including at the Scottish Parliament, Edinburgh Airport and sports grounds.

Andrew Marshall-Roberts, from ScotRail, said: “We are committed to making Scotland’s railway open and accessible to all and installing Grace’s Sign at our stations is just one of the ways we’re doing that.

“Grace is an inspiration and we’re proud to support her campaign to raise awareness that not all disabilities can be seen.”

ScotRail has also made it easier for people who are disabled, pregnant or less able to stand with a trial of pin-badges on the Edinburgh to Glasgow route, which aim to make priority passengers easily identifiable and to encourage all customers to be more considerate.

The badges will be made available in display boxes at Glasgow Queen Street, Edinburgh Waverley, Haymarket, Falkirk High, Polmont and Linlithgow railway station booking office counters to allow customers to help themselves.
