We are currently raising funds for a Changing Places toilet at the Balmedie Country Park so that disabled people, their families and carers can enjoy our lovely beach. 


What are Changing Places toilets?


Standard accessible toilets do not meet the needs of all people with a disability.


People with profound and multiple learning disabilities, as well people with other physical disabilities such as spinal injuries, muscular dystrophy and multiple sclerosis often need extra equipment and space to allow them to use the toilets safely and comfortably. These needs are met by Changing Places toilets.


Changing Places toilets provide:


The right equipment


  • a height adjustable adult-sized changing bench
  • a tracking hoist system, or mobile hoist if this is not possible


Enough space


  • adequate space in the changing area for the disabled person and up to two carers
  • a centrally placed toilet with room either side
  • a screen or curtain to allow some privacy


A safe and clean environment


  • wide tear off paper roll to cover the bench
  • a large waste bin for disposable pads
  • a non-slip floor
