Support for toilet campaign group
THE group campaigning for a Changing Places toilet in Llanelli had a very constructive meeting with Carmarthenshire Council’s director of community services, Jake Morgan.
Changing Places toilets, which are spacious disabled toilets equipped with a hoist and changing bench, are vital for many people with complex disabilities or health conditions.
Llanelli MP Nia Griffith is working with a group of activists to campaign for more of these toilets locally.
Claire Melville, chair of the campaign group, explained: “We are very pleased to hear from Jake Morgan that there is good support from the county council for installing Changing Places toilets.
“He also told us that there has been considerable progress in finding a suitable place for the toilets – ideally we need a site that can have long opening hours and be protected against vandalism. There is still detail to work out and budgeting to be done.”
Mr Morgan said: “Standard toilets do not meet the needs of people with a disability and we all agreed how important it was to make sure we can offer provision for people who often need extra equipment.”
