The BTA is proud and pleased to be a supporter of the Changing Places campaign. Working with the Changing Places Charter Group our organisation is hoping to help and assist everyone needing the CP toilets that would help them to enjoy the day to day activities many of us take for granted.

Local Government Minister Minister Rishi Sunak MP visited Arsenal FC’s stadium to raise awareness of Changing Places toilets.

He met Arsenal fans Thomas, and his mum Barbara, for whom Changing Places are vital for Thomas’s experience at the stadium.

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government published a social media video from this visit to raise the issue further and highlight the government’s push to get more Changing Places toilets installed across the country. The video was published on our department’s Twitter and Facebook pages.

It would be wonderful if we could encourage lots of you to retweet the Twitter post (@MHCLG) and share the Facebook post (/MHCLG) to help to spread the word.

The visit was in light of the Government on 24th December 2019 announcing its intention to consult soon on making it mandatory to install Changing Places toilets in new, large buildings commonly used by the public. More information: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/ministers-act-to-increase-changing-places-toilets-for-severely-disabled-people
