About Changing Places In Derbyshire

CHANGING PLACES IN DERBYSHIRE Many disabled people cannot use standard accessible toilets as they need more space for manoeuvring and assistance. This includes people with profound and multiple learning disabilities and their carers, as well as many other disabled people. CHANGING PLACES toilets are larger than accessible toilets and designed for dependent use, for example with a carer. They have lots of space and specialised equipment, including a height adjustable changing bench and a hoist. They are also clean and provide a safe environment. They allow people with complex and multiple disabilities to enjoy community life and days out with their family and friends in the same way as everyone else. Without these facilities, the alternative is to cut short an outing or change the person in a potentially unhygienic location and undignified fashion.
