New Changing Places Toilet Opens in Andover
I'm extremely grateful to local campaigner, Amy Attrill, for officially opening Andover’s new Changing Places toilet facility.
The new specialist toilet, which includes changing benches and hoists for those with multiple and complex disabilities, is situated in the Unity building by the bus station. It is the first facility of its kind ever provided by Test Valley Borough Council in the town and is much larger than a standard disabled facility to help accommodate one or two carers.
Amy first contacted me in August 2017 as she struggled to find suitable facilities to change her disabled son when away from home and she set up a petition which attracted almost 2,000 supporters.
I’m pleased that with the help of Unity Online we have been able to deliver a facility that will make a real difference to her and her son’s lives, and others like them.
