Access Group flushed with success!

Updated: Aug 21, 2023

On Wednesday 19th July, ADKC Access Group members and staff attended the opening of a new Changing Places facility in Holland Park.

Changing Places toilets have a hoist, room for 2 support workers and a height adjustable changing bench, breaking down the barriers of inaccessible toilet facilities for disabled people with high support needs.
