Sometimes you just need to change one thing to open up a world of possibility…
Many people don’t give visiting public buildings a second thought. But some disabled people are unable to take part in activities many take for granted because standard accessible toilets do not meet their needs – or the needs of their carers and families.
Imagine having to change your loved one or someone you care for on a public toilet floor. This just isn’t acceptable.
But it’s a reality many have to face daily because they have no choice.
With access to a Changing Places toilet, which has a changing bench, hoist, peninsular toilet and plenty of space, all of that changes. That’s why we need more Changing Places toilets right across the UK.
What do Changing Places toilets have? The right equipment.
A height-adjustable changing bench
A tracking hoist system, or mobile hoist if this is not possible
Enough space for the disabled person, up to two carers and their equipment
A centrally placed toilet with room either side for the carers
A screen or curtain to allow some privacy
A safe and clean environment
Wide tear-off paper roll to cover the bench
A large waste bin for disposable pads
A non-slip floor
