Welcome to our new website! Did you know that over a 1/4 million people in the UK need Changing Places Toilets to enable them to get out and about and enjoy the day-to-day activities which many of us take for granted. To use a toilet in safety and comfort, these people need to be able to access a CPT, which has more space and the right equipment, including a height adjustable changing bench, a peninsular toilet and a celling hoist.
Standard accessible toilets do not meet the needs of all people with a disability. Over ¼ million people in the UK with a disability need extra equipment and space to allow them to use the toilets safely and comfortably. These needs are met by Changing Places toilets.
In the UK the number of people who would benefit from a Changing Places toilet would include approximately:
people with profound and multiple learning disabilities
older people, including people with Dementia and Alzheimer's
people with muscular dystrophy and neuromuscular conditions
people with cerebral palsy
people with an acquired brain injury
people with Multiple Sclerosis

I never thought I’d be talking so publicly about toilets…. but here we go!
A Changing Places toilet enables me to breathe – what do I mean by that?
