Accessible train station design

The Changing Places consortium is currently working with architects and developers who are upgrading Category A train stations across the UK. Their document:
Accessible Train Station Design for Disabled People:
A Code of Practice Version 03 – Valid from 1 November 2011
A joint publication by Department for Transport and Transport Scotland
states that:
“A Changing Places toilet facility should be provided in all large railway stations (category A). Further advice on the design and installation of Changing Places facilities can be obtained by contacting the Changing Places consortium. The Changing Places facility should be in addition to, not instead of, the provision of unisex accessible WCs.”
We are also currently meeting with station managers who have responded to our recent letters sent out across the UK to individual stations and have received some strong support for the campaign.
The full document can be read at:

The Changing Places campaign is run by the Changing Places Consortium.
