Even getting out and about in their local area can be difficult for people with severe disabilities. Something as simple as a trip to the library can be a logistical nightmare when there is no access to a suitable toilet. Local Authorities can increase their presence on the Changing Places toilet map by installing Changing Places facilities in as many public buildings as possible. How accessible is your local area?
It is recommended that all civic centres have access to at least one Changing Places facility. A civic centre is the heart of any town or city, so it is vital that Local Authorities make these areas as accessible as possible for people with disabilities. Public/civic buildings are ideal candidates for Changing Places toilets, as are community halls, libraries and public parks/attractions.
There are over 11 million people with a disability in the UK? It is essential that the local community and facilities are accessible to society’s most vulnerable people.
Increase your reputation as a caring Local Authority by providing better toilet provisions for local people. Better disability access will result in public buildings and facilities being utilised by more people and increase wellbeing in local communities. Local Authorities can also boost tourism and attract more visitors by installing Changing Places facilities.
iHUS specialise in the installation of modular Changing Places facilities and disability adaptions. We have worked in partnership with several Local Authorities to improve the lives of local people and have several solutions to help put your town or city on the Changing Place toilet map.
Our pre-built modular Changing Places facilities are manufactured at our site in South Yorkshire and then delivered to your location ready to be installed by our team. This method minimises the work and organisation required at your end as we manage the entire process.
If you don’t have the space for a modular facility, then we can adapt an existing space into a Changing Places toilet, an unused room in a library, for example. So long as the space is large enough to meet BS8300 recommendations, then we can adapt it into a hygienic, safe facility for your local community.
iHUS have over 30 years’ in the construction industry and specialise in disability adaptions and modular solutions. We’re passionate about making the UK more accessible, one business at a time.
