Changing Places Leicester

#CPTour #ChangingFriendly Leicester

OpeMed as Official co-sponsor of The Changing Places Consortium have begun the Changing Places Tour of the UK. Now with around 600 facilities installed and in use for disabled users we have been keen to investigate alongside parents and users.We spend the day in a selected City of choice visiting all of the CP locations, we check to see how visible the toilet is, how user friendly and how clean it is. So far we have had great support and it has been an eye opening experience from the view point of a user searching for a CP toilet.
Welcome to the Changing Places TourThe Changing Places tour commenced on 21/11/13 with OpeMed and Astor Bannerman (Aveso).
