"changing places, changing lives"
Over a 1/4 million people need Changing Places toilets to enable them to get out and about and enjoy the day-to day activities many of us take for granted.
The Changing Places Consortium launched its campaign in 2006 on behalf of the over 1/4 of a million people who cannot use standard accessible toilets. This includes people with profound and multiple learning disabilities, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, as well as older people.
Changing Places toilets provide extra equipment and space to enable people with profound and multiple learning disabilities, or physical disabilities such as spinal injuries, muscular dystrophy and multiple sclerosis, to use them safely and comfortably.
