CHANGING PLACES TOILET

What are these?   |   Who needs them?   |   Where are they found?   
Want to know more?

What changes?

  • the available space changes. Standard accessible toilets (or "disabled toilets") do not provide enough room to accommodate a wheelchair and two carers or a centrally placed toilet with room either side 
  • the facilities change with the provision of a height adjustable changing bench, a ceiling track hoist, a peninsular toilet, and shower facilities
  • personal horizons change as the possibility of getting out and about for day trips and holidays can be a reality, which many of us take for granted

 Who finds these life changing?

  • anyone with profound or multiple learning disabilities, as well people with other physical disabilities such as spinal injuries, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy 
  • the quarter of a million disabled people in the UK with limited availability of an appropriate toilet changing facility
  • people who are presently excluded from a wide range of activities because of their disabilities

Where are Changing Places Toilets to be found?

  • a network of Changing Places Toilets exists across Scotland but there is not one in Highland Perthshire 
  • the Atholl Centre in Pitlochry, a popular tourist town and centre for a wider rural community, have made plans to create a unique Highland Perthshire CPT. An App is available which enables a person to locate the Atholl Centre CPT
  • as the Atholl Baptist Centre celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year, it is marking the occasion by building a CPT in their premises off Atholl Road, Pitlochry, Perthshire, PH16 5BX

How can you be involved in this project to change people's lives?

  • spread the news that the Atholl Baptist Centre, even although it cannot accommodate guests during this Covid-19 pandemic, is still trusting God to enable them to begin the building work to create and equip the CPT in late autumn 2020
  • donate to the Crowdfunding Appeal to show you too want to give dignity, show sensitivity and provide hygienic and safe toilet facilities which can change people’s lives

Let's make 'Changing Places Toilet' happen
