Fund title: Investment in Changing Places toilets

Focus of fund/fund aims:

Investment in Changing Places toilets in existing buildings to allow people with complex needs greater access to public places

Application deadline:

Not yet announced

Fund description:

The government has announced a new £30 million fund to increase the number of Changing Places toilet facilities across existing buildings in England. The funding will improve access for people who cannot use standard accessible toilets.

Changing Places toilets are larger accessible toilets for people who cannot use standard disabled toilets, with equipment such as hoists, curtains, adult-sized changing benches and space for carers.

District and Unitary authorities will be invited to “opt in” to bid for a proportion of the funding so that they can install Changing Places facilities in existing buildings, for example leisure and sports, cinemas, and arts and tourism venues. They will be encouraged to work with local organisations that are interested in having a Changing Places toilet in their venue/building.
