£30 million worth of funding is being made available by the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government to increase the number of Changing Places toilets across England.
Funding will be distributed through Local Authorities, who will be invited to opt-in to bid for a proportion of the funding so they can install facilities in their communities and increase the number of Changing Place toilets in existing buildings, for example, leisure and sports, cinemas, and arts and tourism venues.
The aim of the programme, which will be delivered in partnership with Muscular Dystrophy UK, is to ensure more disabled people can take part in everyday activities that have the greatest impact on their quality of life.
District and unitary authorities will receive full details of how they can access this funding in due course.
As funding will be distributed through Local Authorities, it is recommended that interested organisations get in touch with their relevant local authority to register their interest in working in partnership with them to deliver a Changing Places toilet in their venue/ building.
