Changing Places accessible toilets
Changing Places work with organisations to provide accessible toilets on behalf of people who cannot use standard accessible toilets. Changing Places toilets are intended for people with profound and multiple learning disabilities and carers, as well as for people who are living with physical conditions and disabilities which means standard accessible toilets do not meet your needs.
There are two groups of Changing Places toilets:
- The first group are ‘accredited toilets’, which have met the standards for room size, accessible design and appropriate equipment
- The second group are toilets which have met 75% of the standards. The toilets are not called Changing Places, but are included on the Changing Places website
You can find out more about the scheme on the Changing Places website.
The Great British Public Toilet Map
The public toilet map pinpoints toilets which can be used by members of the public in the area you are planning to visit. You can see details of the toilet’s location, opening times, fees and facilities by clicking on the pinpoint of the toilet you want to know about.
National Key Scheme
The National Key Scheme (NKS), sometimes known as the RADAR Scheme, aims to provide key holders with independent access to locked accessible toilets and avoids the person having to ask for the key. The scheme is managed by Disability Rights UK.
As well as public convenience toilets, toilets for disabled people provided by a wide range of other public, voluntary and commercial organisations have been fitted with the NKS lock. This means you can now use an NKS key in shopping centres, country parks, railway and bus stations, bars, motorway service areas and sports venues.
You can find out more about the scheme on the Disability Rights UK website.
