Interior of an accessible toilet

Changing Places toilets offer peace of mind that clean facilities are never far away when you're out and about.

Changing Places are found around the country and include:

  • Adult-sized, height adjustable changing benches
  • Hoisting equipment
  • Enough space for a child/young person, plus two carers
  • Centrally placed toilets with room either side for the carers
  • Privacy screens or curtains around the toilet
  • Wide tear-off paper roll to cover the bench
  • A large waste bin for disposable pads and a non-slip floor

Each district in Essex has its own type of key. This helps ensure keys aren’t shared with people who shouldn’t have them.

To use a key in another district, apply to that district's council.
