New Changing Places Facility now available

The Lowry, Salford, has installed a specialist Changing Places toilet for disabled people and their carers to use.

Changing Places toilet and changing facilities are designed to meet the needs of those who have profound and complex disabilities. Larger than a standard accessible toilet and open to the public, the facilities will make The Lowry and The Quays accessible to even more people.

The new Changing Places facility is now open at the Salford Quays arts centre and has been made possible thanks to a joint application with Salford City Council for grant funding provided by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities in association with Muscular Dystrophy UK.

It is accessed by a RADAR key and features height­ adjustable, adult sized changing bench, ceiling track hoist system, space for up to two assistants, toilet with grab rails, privacy screen, and a height­ adjustable washbasin.

Tony Smith, Commercial Director at The Lowry said: “We want to make visiting The Lowry as easy and comfortable as we can for all of our visitors and this new facility will enable more people the freedom to take part in and enjoy everything that we have to have to offer.  We are delighted that our joint bid with Salford City Council was successful and has resulted in the opening of this new Changing Places toilet.”
