Advice on changing & hair dressers

Hi there, 
I have a couple of questions which I am hoping someone might be able to help with. Firstly, my daughter is 3 and has cerebral palsy level 5, she is now too big to be placed on baby changing stations but is still in nappies and unable to independently sit/stand do anything to help, does anyone know how/have any tips on how when we go out I can change her safely & with dignity. We often avoid going out because I have such trouble trying to change her and I refuse to lie her down on a dirty toilet floor to do so.

Secondly, does anyone know of any hairdressers who are used to or specialise in hair dressing for disabled children as I don’t really know where to look. General searches haven’t brought anything up and I wondered if anyone knows of anyone in the Greater Manchester area who they would recommend.

Thank you for your time

Helen (mum to the lovely Flora)
