All of our 47,000 members have their own Can't Wait Card.
Designed to be discreetly tucked away in a purse or wallet, the Can't Wait Card is available in 30 different languages for travelling abroad.
Our Can't Wait Card makes it easier for members to ask to use toilets in shops, restaurants and other buildings (which may not be public facing), without having to give a long explanation about their condition.
Urgent diarrhoea is one of the most common and debilitating symptoms of Crohn's and Colitis. A major anxiety for people living with the condition is being refused access to toilets or being confronted about using a 'disabled' toilet. Whilst someone may appear to look ‘okay’ on the outside, they may be in a daily battle with the condition and urgently need to use a toilet whilst out in public.
Some companies we are working with to raise awareness of Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, and recognition of the Can't Wait Card include:
