Traditional accessible toilets do not often meet the needs of the thousands of people with profound and multiple learning disabilities as well as other severe impairments such as spinal injuries, muscular dystrophy and cerebal palsy.

Toilet equipment

A Changing Places toilet has more space and provides the equipment people need to be able to use the toilet in safety and comfort. It is important that these features are all present in order to make sure the toilet is suitable for those who need it most.

Each toilet must provide an adult sized, height adjustable changing bench, a hoist and a peninsular (centrally placed) toilet.
