What is a Changing Places toilet?
A Changing Places toilet is somewhere private and clean with the correct equipment for disabled adults and children to use when out and about.

- A centrally placed toilet with room either side for carers
- Screen for privacy
- Paper roll to cover the bed
- Yellow waste bin for disposable pads
