Changing Places Toilet Finder
Lifestyle, Medical IOS
This is not an app to find standard accessible (RADAR or disabled) toilets. Changing Places are different to standard accessible (disabled) toilets. There are over 1800 changing places toilets in the UK - and others worldwide. This App allows you to find your nearest facility by searching a specific location, find how to get there, how to get in, and what facilities are there.
Changing Places offer the facilities of a standard accessible toilet for disabled people but with extra space (7m² originally and now 12m²), an adult changing bench and a hoist (you will need to bring your own sling). These are essential for people who have a carer or profound and multiple learning disabilities or cannot reasonably use standard accessible toilets. It includes 600 'U' toilets and Space2Change toilets. They are both very similar to standard accessible toilets for disabled people and typically also have a hoist and an adult sized changing bench, but do not comply with the full Changing Places standard, often due to limited space or having corner toilets.
Our website at www.changingplacesmap.org has a similar toilet finding map, which has enhanced functionality that is made practical when matched by the larger screens and greater processing power of a PC. It includes multiple routes and extra search functions.
This app replaces the first ever phone app for Changing Places, which was launched by us in August 2015.
