Astor-Bannerman Changing Places
As experts and manufacturers of specialist changing, hoisting and moving and handling equipment, Astor-Bannerman support the Changing Places campaign by offering expert advice and range of additional services and solutions to venues through working directly with them and their architects, building contractors.
The Changing Places campaign is all about having better facilities for the people who are unable to use a standard toilet area and making venues much more accessible.
In the UK, there are 11.4million disabled people making up around 1 in 5 people or 19% of the population and over 230,000 people need personal assistance to use the toilet or change continence pads.
Disabled people account for 20% of the customer base of the average UK business and households with a disabled person have a combined income of £212billion after housing costs.
A lack of clean and adequate disabled toilet and changing facilities creates a barrier to participating in social and community life and another report by Contact a Family showed that 65% of families with disabled children reported feeling isolated frequently or all of the time.
However, there are solutions to becoming more inclusive and accessible and in turn increase revenue and visitors by introducing Changing Places toilet facilities.
