We are proud that High Rise includes an accessible Changing Places toilet facility. We know from our research with parents and carers that standard accessible toilets do not meet the needs of all people with a disability so we have invested in providing a specialist Changing Places toilet.
Changing Places toilets are larger than standard disabled toilets, with extra features and more space. Our Changing Places toilet provides specialised equipment, enough space and a clean and safe environment. By providing space, privacy and appropriate equipment, High Rise is supporting families and carers to look after people with disabilities in dignified and hygienic conditions. The Changing Places toilet features a ceiling-mounted hoist system, and we would kindly ask users to bring their own sling.
Our Changing Places toilet is open to guests of High Rise, as well as to others, and is registered with the Changing Places Consortium and included on the official Changing Places map.
