Changing Places

OpeMed, as a joint venture with Astor Bannerman, are the official sponsors 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.

What is Changing Places?

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’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.

We work closely in line with the BS8300:2009 which states that Changing Places facilities should be provided in buildings and complexes such as transport termini, motorway services, sport/leisure facilities, museums, concert halls, art galleries, stadia, shopping centres, civic centres, educational establishments and health facilities.

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.
