Changing Places – Westminster City Council in partnership with Everyone Active are proud to have installed a Changing Places Toilet in Porchester Centre, as part of the Main Pool renovation. This facility means that everyone, regardless of their access needs, or disability, or reliance on the assistance of carers or specialist equipment, can use a toilet facility with dignity and hygienically!
People with profound and multiple learning disabilities or with 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 enable anyone, regardless of their disability, to go for a swim, go to the shops, attend hospital appointments, enjoy community life, socialise and travel. All the things that most of us take for granted every day.
