Our Managing Director, Nick Kent is proud to be offering a seminar at the prestigeous UD2016, (held previously at Lund in 2014 and Oslo in 2012). He will be introducing and covering the Changing Places campaign, standards, requirements and equipment considerations in:
“Changing Places: an international perspective on the provision of accessible toilets in public spaces”
The seminar held on Tuesday 23 August, 11:00 – 12:30 will focus on how and why the UK (and now Australia) has paved the way with Changing Places rooms in public spaces, tourism and transport hubs and why this should be rolled out internationally.
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.
