History

The Changing Places Consortium launched its campaign in 2006 on behalf of the over 1/4 million people in the UK who cannot use standard accessible toilets. This includes people with profound and multiple learning disabilities, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy as well as older people.

In 2015 Leicester Outdoor Pursuits Centre was approached to have a facility on their site, work started in November 2016 to biuld the facility on the side of the changing block. The work was completed and opened in March 2017.
