Changing Places toilets are toilets that are larger and more accessible for people who are severely disabled. They have equipment such as hoists, privacy screens, adult-sized changing benches, peninsula toilets, and space for carers. All things to make these toilets better accessible not only for the disabled user but also for the carer that’s with them.
Changing Places are an incredibly important part of any community for many of the people who need them. The only problem is the amount. Which is why the government wants to see a change in the quantity of Changing Places toilets across the country. In order to do this, they’ve allocated a fund for local authorities to apply for.
All of this is to encourage and accelerate the provision in existing buildings that are already in England.
In 2021, the government opened applications for a share of a £30 million fund for Changing Places toilets (CPT). This fund was so that life improving CPTs could be installed in public places and tourist attractions.
Many charities work hard for this cause to make authorities take action. Like MDUK. As co-chair of the Changing Places consortium, MDUK work closely with DLUHC and other local authorities. They provide specialist expertise to support local councils that are awarded the funding.
Charities that are looking to raise funds for future Changing Place projects can also consider investing. Charities of all sizes can invest funds and there are even specialist companies that provide investment management for charities to help advise where funds are best allocated.
Unfortunately, funds don’t always cover the amount you need. Many existing CPTs were funded due to campaigners’ hard work and public generosity.
