Many disabled people cannot use standard accessible toilets as they need more space for mobility 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 standard 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, as well as a shower.
 
They are 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.
 
Here at Sailmakers we are proud to have a fully equipped Changing Places toilet.
