Changing place is a campaign run by a consortium of prominent organisations including: Mencap and the Scottish Government
The aim is to have in every big public place a toilet should be installed with the facilities: extra space, a tracking hoists and changing beds need by some 40,000 people with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD) and other serve impairments.
At the moment this group find that ‘standard’ disabled toilets inaccessible due to the lack of these facilities. Meaning that many disabled people end up staying at home or put themselves, or there carers at risk by using toilets that are not suitable.
There are already over 500 toilets up and running, but more are needed.
Take action by running a local campaign, spreading the word, writing to the government or lobbying transport providers.
They have also started a petition to Motorway Service Station Operators to improve toileting facilites at service stations as many disabled children and adults end up being changed on toilet floors. Do take action by signing their petition.
