Toilets For Severely Disabled People Made Compulsory In Every New Building In England
Toilets For Severely Disabled People Made Compulsory In Every New Building In England – Huffington Post
New buildings in England will be required to include toilets which have been specially adapted to meet the needs of severely disabled people, ministers have confirmed.
According to the Changing Places campaign, at least 250,000 people in the UK are unable to use standard accessible toilets because they do not have changing benches or hoists and are often too small to accommodate carers.
Campaigners say this means some disabled people feel restricted about leaving their homes – or that they often have to lie down on a dirty bathroom floor.
After many years of campaigning this will be very welcomed by a lot of people.
Do you need to use a Changing Places toilet? Do you think there should be more of them?
