Changing Places toilets programme: prospectus
The prospectus for the £30 million Changing Places toilets programme.
Applies to England
More than 250,000 severely disabled people across the UK do not have access to public toilet facilities that meet their needs. Changing Places toilets open up public places to this group and their families, enabling them to enjoy the same experiences as everyone else.
Changing Places toilets are larger accessible toilets for severely disabled people, with equipment such as hoists, privacy screens, adult-sized changing benches, peninsula toilets and space for carers.
The government wants to see a step change in the number of Changing Places toilets across the country. This is why at Budget 2021, the Chancellor announced a £30 million Changing Places Fund to accelerate provision in existing buildings in England. This prospectus sets out how district and unitary local authorities can access this fund.
