Changing Places Survey

Closed 21 Sep 2021

Opened 8 Sep 2021

Overview

In a national effort to build back better from COVID-19, the government wants to create a stronger, safer and fairer society in which everyone is treated with dignity and respect.

In a major change to statutory guidance in England, the government wants to make it compulsory to include a Changing Places toilets in new, publicly accessible buildings – but the government wants to go much further.

In July, the government announced £30 million to help local authorities to work with local charities and other organisations to increase the number of Changing Places toilets in every part of the country, including Sutton.

Changing Places toilets are larger accessible toilets for severely disabled people, with equipment such as hoists, privacy screens, adult-sized changing benches, peninsula toilets and space for carers.
