Welcome Break achieve 999th Changing Places for Changing Places Awareness Day
We are delighted to announce we have completed our latest Changing Places project with Welcome Break at Newport Pagnell Services.
This competition marks the 999th Changing Places on the second Changing Places Awareness Day (July 19th) now celebrating 11 amazing years of the Changing Places Campaign and the successes the campaign so far.
These facilities help to prevent impossible or distressing journeys opening up new locations and areas that were inaccessible previously. For the 11 million people in the UK registered as disabled and those who care for them, it represents dignity and hygiene during their travels – something which is still sorely missed in many popular UK travel destinations.
Working alongside Welcome Break as the official sponsors and suppliers for the Changing Places campaign, OpeMed have supported Welcome Break over the last few years as they have ensured their accessibility grows across their facilities. Now offering eight Changing Places facilities across England, Welcome Break has been a pioneer in accessible service stations as many other major brands begin to offer similar services.
The newly installed Changing Places are fully compliant at 12m2, offering plenty of room for wheelchairs and carers. The OT200 ceiling hoist enables easy and swift transfer to the height adjustable changing table, which can be lowered to optimum working height for whomever is using it.
These toilets that are now helping the disabled community travel around the country have set the bar high for other motorway service providers. We think showcasing Welcome Break’s commitment to the Changing Places campaign is an excellent way to celerbrate Changing Places Awareness Day, well done Welcome Break!
