Why we need Changing Places

Imagine having to lay your child on the floor of a dirty public toilet? This is a reality for thousands of parents around Australia who do not have access to safe, hygienic and dignified toilet facilities.

Changing Places is a project to advocate for public toilets with full sized change tables and hoists in major public spaces across Australia to meet the needs of people with severe and profound disabilities.

Every day thousands of Australians are confined to their home by lack of appropriate toilet facilities. The only alternatives are being changed on the floor of an unhygienic public toilet or remaining in soiled clothing. There are around 200,000 Australians with a disability who require assistance to use the bathroom. Many require facilities like full sized change tables and ceiling hoists which are not provided in regular wheelchair accessible toilets. Across the country there are only a small handful of amenities which meet their needs. The Changing Places project advocates for safe and hygienic fully accessible toilet facilities in recreational venues, transport hubs, shopping centres and other convenient locations across Australia.

Accredited Changing Places toilets feature height-adjustable change tables, tracking hoist systems, sufficient circulation space and a centrally placed toilet with room at either end for carers.
