Why are Changing Places Toilets Important?

Did you know that standard accessible toilets do not meet the needs of all people with a disability - or their carers? Inadequate, inaccessible facilities can create barriers to people with disabilities getting out and about.

Does Nottingham have Changing Places Toilets?

There are 19 Changing Places toilets in Nottingham, providing enough space for disabled people and their carers and the right equipment, including a height-adjustable changing bench and a hoist.

More information on each location

Changing Places toilets include the following facilities:

  • A height-adjustable changing bench and washbasin
  • A hoist system to lift people between wheelchairs and the toilet
  • Enough space to ensure the bench and toilet can be approached from either side

For Health and Safety reasons, we do not provide slings. Customers are asked to bring their own, which should be compatible with the loop system.

By providing enough space, privacy and appropriate equipment, Nottingham City Council is supporting carers to look after people with disabilities in dignified and hygienic conditions without endangering their health. Putting careful thought into the design of toilet facilities can open up a world of possibilities for people with severe disabilities - ensuring everybody can get out and about to enjoy the city.
