All the news about fully accessible Changing Places toilets!

The Changing Places campaign, run by the Changing Places consortium which includes PAMIS and Mencap, and sponsored by Aveso, is probably the most important initiative in the disability access field for the last 20 years. By focusing on provision of fully accessible public toilets, it supports the rights of people with profound and multiple learning and/or other physical disabilities, to access their community. Without such assisted toileting facilities, people may be restricted to their own homes, or face the indignity of being changed on the toilet floor.

 

Clos-o-mat sponsors Changing Places on Independent LivingIn this area of Independent Living, we will be featuring news about the campaign, including the individual campaigns, very often run by dedicated parents and carers, which lead to Changing Places installations. We also have information about just what is required in a fully accessible facility, and look out for the “diet version” of Changing Places…

 

If you are campaigning for Changing Places in your neighbourhood, or you have any experience to share about truly accessible toilets, we’d like to hear from you! You can comment on any of the stories in this section, or email editor@independentliving.co.uk if you prefer.
