Statement: Response to Ten Minute Rule Bill on Changing Places toilets


Nic Bungay, Director of Campaigns, Care and Information and Muscular Dystrophy UK, which co-chairs the Changing Places Consortium, said:



Muscular Dystrophy UK and the Changing Places Consortium would like to thank Paula for bringing this important campaign to the attention of Parliament. Without access to Changing Places toilets, over a quarter of a million people who have severe disabilities are faced with a choice of not going out or being changed on a toilet floor. By building more Changing Places toilets, we can tackle the exclusion many disabled people face.




We will not rest until Changing Places toilets become commonplace across the UK, and we will continue to work with Paula and all our campaigners to push for changes to legislation to ensure this becomes reality.
