Changing Places toilet installed in Huyton

by Cathy Sheel

Huyton Library is the latest venue to have a Changing Places toilet installed.

Changing Places toilets are larger accessible toilets for severely disabled people, with equipment such as hoists, curtains, adult-sized changing benches and space for carers.

The Council received funding from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities to install the Changing Places toilet, providing well-equipped, accessible toilet facilities in public buildings.

Changing Places toilets give disabled people and their carers the space and equipment they need to have the confidence to leave their homes and go out.

Having access to these much-needed facilities increases independence and improves quality of life.

Karen Hoe, Changing Places Manager, said “We are delighted to see this new Changing Places Toilet installed at Huyton library. This valuable facility will now allow those with complex care challenges more inclusivity within the community.”

The Changing Places toilet is available on the ground floor at Huyton Library and is accessible via a radar key – individuals would normally have their own radar key or visitors can ask a member of the Library staff for assistance.

The opening hours for Huyton Library are 10am until 5pm Monday to Friday and 10am until 1pm on Saturday.
