Install a Changing Places

Changing Places facilities are a real improvement on standard accessible toilets as they provide a larger floor area of 12m² and additional equipment such as a height-adjustable adult-sized changing bench, a full room coverage ceiling track hoist system, a centrally located toilet bowl with space either side for transfers/assistants and a safe and clean environment.

Changing Places facilities need to meet a certain standard to be registered on our website. This is to ensure that any facility advertised as a Changing Places toilet meets the needs and expectations of the people who use them.

Changing Places must have a minimum floor area of 12m² (3m x 4m) with a ceiling height of 2.4m in order to meet the criteria for full registration.
