Changing Places public toilets

What is a Changing Places toilet?

Colonnade changing bench

Changing Places are toilets with enough space for disabled people and their carers. They are designed for people with profound and multiple learning disabilities and their carers as well as the many other disabled people who cannot use standard accessible toilets.

The first Changing Places toilet in Brighton & Hove was opened at The Colonnade, and was sponsored by Wetton Cleaning Services.

We have also opened a new changing places toilet at The Level as part of the park's restoration. This was made possible by Short Breaks Capital funding.

Find opening hours on our accessible public toilets web page

What equipment has been installed?

The site includes a height adjustable bench, height adjustable sink, a Guldmann ceiling hoist, privacy screen, wc pan, incontinence waste disposal, incontinence shelf and audio and visual alarm.

There is an attendant at The Colonnade who will allow access to the unit, and to provide written guidance for using the unit.

Please note slings are not provided for the hoist.
