Changing Places

  1. CP4

    Thanks to funding from the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP) and the Foyle Foundation, the National Space Centre’s teams have been able to create a brand-new Changing Places facility, to support the needs of some of the Centre’s 300,000 yearly visitors.

    Over a 1/4 million people need Changing Places toilets to enable them to get out and about and enjoy the day-to-day activities many of us take for granted.


What is a Changing Places facility?

The new facility is larger than standard accessible toilets with extra features:
  • A height adjustable adult-sized changing bench
  • A tracking hoist system
  • Adequate space in the changing area for the disabled person and up to two carers
  • A centrally placed toilet with room either side for the carers
  • A screen or curtain to allow the disabled person and carer some privacy.
  • Wide tear-off paper roll to cover the bench
  • A large waste bin for disposable pads
  • A non-slip floor
  • Grab rails and an emergency alarm
