Days out with Changing Places

Changing Places are spacious toilet faciities designed to meet the needs of the 250,000 people in the U.K. who need changing when they are out. Without them, those who need them are limited to venturing out for only short periods of time. That’s why we’ve put together a list of these very special facilties right across our region to help you with planning some fabulous days out to treasure.

There are 250,000 people in the U.K. whose needs are not met by standard accessible toilets. Due to profound disability, brain injury or age-related health issues, they need changing when they are out.

Changing Places toilets are large, hygienic toilet facilities with a height adjustable changing bench and a hoist. Having a Changing Places nearby means that those who need them, along with their families, friends and personal assistants, can enjoy a full day out, safe in the knowledge that the right facilities are there when they need them.

Accessible Yorkshire has lots of Changing Places Toilets! Thanks to local councils, museums, art galleries, theatres and attractions along with the tireless campaigning of passionate individuals means that many cities, towns and venues across Yorkshire have these very special facilities.

This section is designed to help you find the Changing Places available across Yorkshire so that you can enjoy a trip to the seaside or a night out at the theatre, safe in the knowledge that the facilities you need are close at hand.

Please note: if you need to use the hoist within a Changing Places facility you will need to bring your own sling along with you.
