What are Changing Places bathrooms?

Changing Places bathrooms, provide an option for people who cannot use a standard accessible bathroom. Features include:

  • adequate space to move around, for a person in a wheelchair and two caregivers
  • a secure access system for registered users only, to ensure the room is only being used for its intended purpose
  • a height-adjustable, adult-sized changing table, hand basin and toilet with privacy screen or curtain
  • a ceiling track or mobile hoist
  • wall-mounted handrails
  • space on both sides of the toilet, so two caregivers can assist the toilet user
  • a shower on a flexible hose over the changing bench/shower plinth
  • a non-slip floor and well-designed wet area
  • a large waste disposal bin and sharps disposal container.

How can I access a Changing Places bathroom?

Access to Changing Places facilities is restricted to only those that need them.

  • To help protect the room and specialised equipment from malicious damage
  • To ensure the safety and wellbeing of people who don’t know how to use the specialised equipment
  • To maximise the cleanliness and availability of the room for those who need it, when they need it
