Almost 250,000 people are estimated to need a Changing Places toilet in the UK.  This includes:

  • 40,000 people with profound and multiple learning disabilities
  • 130,000 older people
  • 30,000 people with cerebral palsy
  • 13,000 people with an acquired brain injury

An estimated 70,000 people live with a muscle-wasting condition in the UK.  Many of those would benefit from the use of a Changing Places toilet.

There are almost 1,000 Changing Places toilets in the UK today.
