Changing Places funding

Your District Council has successfully applied for £69,450 funding to create new accessible 'Changing Places' toilets at two of the district's popular visitor attractions.

The Council will work with Chatsworth House Stables and Sudbury Hall National Trust Museum of Childhood to install the new facilities after winning the funding through the Government's Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities.

Both Chatsworth and Sudbury are providing match funding towards the Changing Places toilet - and in both locations these facilities will be free to access (you won't need to be a paying customer at either site).

Changing Places toilets are created to meet the needs of disabled children and adults with complex care needs who need carer support, appropriate equipment and more space.

The District Council's Community Development Manager Becky Bryan said:
"We are delighted to have won this funding, which will provide Changing Places toilets with the right equipment, including a changing bench and a hoist, designed to support disabled people who need assistance.
"Unfortunately standard accessible toilets do not meet the needs of some disabled people, with more than 250,000 people in the UK needing personal assistance to use the toilet, including those with profound and multiple learning disabilities, spinal injuries and people living with stroke impacts.
"We look forward to working with Chatsworth and Sudbury in the coming year to make these important installations happen."
