The Changing Places Fund will invest up to £30 million over three financial years from 2021/22 to increase the number of Changing Places toilets in existing buildings in England that are accessible to the public.
Changing Places toilets help people with severe disabilities to take part in everyday activities with the same dignity as everyone else and feature:
- a changing table big enough for adults
- enough room for the person and their carer to move around
- a non-slip floor
- paper sheets to cover the bench
- a large rubbish bin
The Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) is inviting local authorities in England to complete an Expression of Interest form by 26 September 2021 to receive capital funding.
Local authorities are encouraged to work with parish and town councils to identify the potential to install new Changing Places toilets in their area.
