An action group is calling for ‘at least two Changing Places accessible toilets’ to be installed at a new town centre development in the Hampshire town of Whitehill and Bordon.

The Whitehill and Bordon Disability Action Group’s new campaign is hoping to gather enough support so that specialist equipment can be bought to equip the prospective facilities.

Changing Places toilets feature a fully-accessible toilet, a hoist, adjustable changing bench and enough space for multiple carers.

They are designed to cater for people with profound and multiple learning disabilities and others who have a disability or condition that means they need personal support to manage their continence.

Leading the campaign is Iain Speed, managing director of Bordon business All Inclusive and committee member of the action group.

“The new development in Whitehill and Bordon offers a real opportunity for the town to become a place of excellence for all those with access issues,” he told the Petersfield Post.
