With the school holidays upon us we are travelling further afield and looking for many different things to do. This is the first of a series of posts on making being out easier or just having fun.
I’m sure we’ve all been there “mum I need a wee” while in a place you don’t know or travelling to somewhere. I’ll admit I do little in the way of forward planning for such eventualities but I think there is benefit in knowing where to find the nearest disabled toilet.
- RADAR Key
- Changing Places Toilets
For toilets that meet the needs of all with disabilities, PAMIS have a leaflet detailing all the locations in Scotland . Also CLOS-O-MAT has a map covering the whole of the UK . And the Changing Places website has a really handy post-code search tool.
Now it really needs a list all of its own. The volunteers in London last year were using an app to find disabled toilets for people. The first time it directed us to a disabled toilet within a COSTA store and we had no difficulties using it without buying anything. There are now a few available in the app store, Inclusive London and London Access being two with good feedback.
