Motion text

That this House notes the new research from the University of Dundee released by Mencap and the Changing Places Consortium which reveals that up to 230,252 people require the use of a Changing Places toilet; further notes that this 230,252 includes 36,782 people with profound and multiple learning disabilities, 30,947 people with cerebral palsy, 8,000 people with spina bifida and 8,500 people with multiple sclerosis; is alarmed that despite this massive demand there are only 85 Changing Places toilets available in the UK; understands that a Changing Places toilet is a toilet which has enough space for a disabled person, their carers and the right equipment which includes an adult-sized height-adjustable changing bench and a hoist; further understands that without them people who need support from one or two carers to use the toilet or to have their continence pad changed either have to stay at home or their family carers have to resort to changing them on dirty toilet floors; calls on the Government to encourage the building of Changing Places toilets in venues such as hospitals, shopping centres or large train stations; and further calls on the Government to amend Part M of the Building Regulations to ensure that all newly built major public buildings provide a Changing Places toilet.
