Mobiloo was conceived and launched by Active Impact, a community interest company founded in 2010. In 2018 its directors took the decision to separate it out into its own dedicated charity, Vehicles for Change. The staff team responsible for Mobiloo’s success have also made the switch to continue their employment within the dedicated charity. Both organisations share the social mission of creating more and better-quality opportunities for disabled people along with their friends, families and carers to take their rightful place in our society.
Mobiloo vehicle is a life-changing mobile toilet that was created to stop disabled people being changed on the floors of public toilets. The changing space is housed in a custom-built van, which can be booked for events along with a friendly, well-trained attendant. They currently operate nine Mobiloo vehicles across all of mainland Britain. They will use the £160,000 to acquire and equip four more Mobiloo Vehicles.
