Safe toilet access for all

19 July 2018: Changing Places Awareness Day

Join us in celebrating toilet access and raising awareness about why Changing Places toilets are needed!

Who needs Changing Places toilets?

Standard accessible toilets meet the needs of some disabled people – but not all. Over ¼ million people and their families and carers rely on Changing Places toilets to go out and do things many take for granted. This includes people with muscle-wasting conditions, profound and multiple learning disabilities, multiple sclerosis, as well as some older people.

What is a Changing Places toilet?

A Changing Places toilet is different from a standard accessible toilet. It provides a hoist, a height adjustable adult-sized changing bench and additional space. There are over 1,000 in the UK.

What do we want to happen?

Muscular Dystrophy UK and PAMIS are the co-chairs of the Changing Places Consortium. The Consortium is campaigning for Changing Places toilets to be installed in all large public places, like shopping centres, hospitals, transport hubs and airports. We want every disabled person to be able to access a toilet that meets their needs.

Get involved!

Join us and thousands of others in campaigning for more Changing Places toilets. Email changingplaces@musculardystrophyuk.org or visit www.changing-places.org
