Install More Disabled Changing Rooms in Britain

Install More Disabled Changing Rooms in Britain

Make it compulsory for more public places to install Disabled Changing Rooms to ensure a better quality of life for disabled people.

Why is this important?

At the moment only a few establishments in the UK have disabled changing places, ie a toilet with a hoist and disabled changing bed. Companies do not realise that a disabled toilet on it's own does not cater for the needs of people who can't stand unaided or weightbear. As a consequence, many disabled people and their carers find their choice of leisure/social activities limited by the lack of a disabled toilet which they can use without being lifted and/or suffering the degradation of being changed on the floor in a disabled toilet. Even family orientated venues like Center Parcs do not offer disabled changing places.

This is an issue that daily impacts on my 20 year old daughter's life, and therefore also on ours and her carers'. My daughter either waits for the toilet until we get home, which can take anything from half an hour to an hour, depending on where we are. Or, despite my urging her not to, she will go without a drink. Disabled people are being deprived of a basic human right that most of us take for granted.
