There are an estimated 230,000 people in the UK that need assistance to use the toilet or change continence pads. These people usually have profound and multiple learning disabilities. A Changing Places toilet can give these people a new-found freedom as they are able to stay away from home longer, knowing that they can visit a safe, hygienic bathroom.
Thousands of businesses across nearly every sector in the UK could benefit from installing a Changing Places bathroom. Benefit from an increased good reputation, more visitors and boosted profits.
The ‘purple pound’ is combined spending power of disabled people in the UK. At last estimate, it has a value of £212 billion in the British economy. This represents a huge amount of new custom for UK businesses – at least for those that are accessible to disabled people, including those with profound or severe disabilities.
Local Authorities have a duty to care for local communities by providing the appropriate services and spaces. Increase and encourage more local people to civic centres and public attractions by installing a Changing Places toilet.
Tourist attractions are missing out on potential new customers who are concerned they can’t visit destinations because of the lack of suitable toilets. Increase your visitor numbers by making your business welcoming to people with disabilities.

Better facilities at transport hubs means more customers and bigger profits. Ensure your destination is ready to receive disabled visitors with a Changing Places toilet. Train, bus, and service stations can all benefit, as well as airport terminals.
Standard accessible toilets don’t meet the needs of all disabled people – such as those who have profound and multiple learning difficulties. These customers will often need extra equipment and space to enable them to be changed or use a toilet safely.
