Accessible toilets and changing places

Lack of space and mobility can make it difficult for disabled people to use standard toilets which can sometimes make getting out and about difficult.

In Derbyshire we offer a range of accessible toilets to make your visits and journeys easier.

Accessible toilets

Accessible toilets (or disabled people's toilets as they are often referred to) provide space and support for many disabled people, particularly wheelchair users, to access and independently use the toilet. You may need a RADAR key to access some accessible toilets.

Changing Places

Changing places toilets are larger than standard accessible toilets and designed for dependent use, for example with a carer.

They have lots of space and specialised equipment, including a height-adjustable changing bench and a hoist.

They are also clean and provide a safe environment.

They allow people with complex and multiple disabilities to enjoy community life and days out with their family and friends.

Without these facilities, the alternative is to cut short an outing or change the person in a potentially unhygienic location and undignified fashion.
