A total of 16 Changing Places facilities were registered in August from each UK country, including two in Northern Ireland, two in Wales, one in Scotland and 11 in England.

There were 1,031 Changing Places listed in the UK as of the end of last month demonstrating the growing demand for the facilities as campaign groups place pressure on tourist sites and local authorities to improve access.

Changing Places feature specially adapted toilets, a hoist system and ample room for multiple people as well as a range of other adaptations. They are designed to offer better facilitation than standard disabled toilets.

In recent months the Changing Places campaign has gathered momentum after the milestone of 1,000 registered facilities.

National exposure on social media and in the press has helped the cause and placed more pressure on businesses to invest in the facilities.

Liverpool John Lennon airport is one of the latest transport hubs to have purchased equipment to be installed in a Changing Places format, following on from groups like Gatwick Airport which has already installed multiple toilets.
