AAA Committee members were invited to the official launch of a Changing Places in the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission Building in Dublin. Changing Places toilets are different to standard accessible toilets in that they provide more space and extra equipment for people with disabilities and their assistants.
Changing Places facilities include among other things: a centrally located toilet with adequate space both sides for transfers/assistants, adequate place for a wheelchair user and at least two assistants, a height-adjustable adult size changing bench and a full room coverage ceiling track hoist system. There are a small number of facilities of this kind in Ireland, however, our campaign is encouraging businesses, organisations and public bodies to build and fund more of these facilities.
