The Space to Change concept has been developed to ensure that the personal hygiene needs of children and adults who need changing and lifting facilities for their personal care are met when away from home, as much as possible.
Space to Change provides alternative guidance where space is restricted, more likely to be the case in small buildings and refurbishments.
It encompasses a 7.5m2+ (3m x 2.5m min) wheelchair-accessible toilet that further includes an adult-sized changing bench and a hoist.Support this Campaign
This one small gesture can make a big impact with the entire special needs community.
Gives families the reassurance that facilities are available when needed to enable them to have a fun family day out without worrying about changing facilities.
It is an ideal solution for cafes, restaurants, supermarkets, sports facilities and other smaller outlets visited by the public; locations where space and/or cost is an issue.
Most suitable for existing building as a refurbishment to an existing parent/baby room or disabled toilet where there is space, ideally 7.5 sqm.
Includes as standard conventional wheelchair - wheelchair accessible equipment PLUS a hoist and height adjustable adult sized changing bench.
