The Changing Places Campaign

What are Changing Places?

What is a Changing Places and where can I find them?

Changing Places is a campaign on behalf of people who cannot use standard accessible toilets. This includes people with profound learning disabilities, their carers, as well as other disabled people. They need Changing Places toilets with space and the right equipment- including a height adjustable changing bench and a hoist.

OpeMed are the official sponsors and equipment manufacturers of the Changing Places Campaign as Aveso. OpeMed have installed Ceiling Hoists, Adjustable Sinks and Changing Tables in Changing Places projects throughout the country, from libraries to universities to schools to public spaces. OpeMed’s experience at layout and installation and the ability to work with our own manufactured products sets us apart from the competition in terms of service and support.

To make it easier to find your nearest facility Changing Places have created a useful map database. Please click here  and simply enter your postcode or town into the search bar, set the distance from your location and click search.

Who uses a Changing Places facility?

People with profound and multiple learning disabilities, as well as other serious impairments such as spinal injuries, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis or an acquired brain injury, often need extra facilities to allow them to use the toilets comfortably. Changing Places toilets are different to standard disabled toilets with extra features and more space to meet these needs.

Please view the Mencap Changing Places video to learn more.
