Your comments: 

“This proposal will make a difference to so many lives and give dignity to people. It will benefit everyone. Thank you to Housing Minister Kevin Stewart MSP for listening and taking this forward. Fantastic.”

“I can’t comment on the criteria as specified, but certainly support the objective. It’s inexcusable in this day and age that major public facilities wouldn’t include such toilets.”

“These toilets or facilities are about inclusion. They give people people with a range of different long term condition and disabilities the facilities they need to help them attend events like everyone else or simply just get out and about.”

“As the situation exists some disabled children ( or even adults) have to be changed on the floor of a standard toilet or from the boot of a car. This is clearly unacceptable.”

“Being able to access a toilet is a basic human right and the fact that there are members of our communities that can’t is a disgrace.”

“Changing Places are essential to maintain the dignity of disabled people.”

“They need to be done to an agreed standard. Too many do not meet this standard and should not be called changing Places Toilets as this leads to people being disappointed and mislead”
