Changing Places facility installed at The Millennium Stadium

  • 3 Jul 2015

Changing Places are bigger in size and feature more equipment than conventional wheelchair-accessible toilets, including an adult-sized height adjustable changing bench and ceiling hoist.

The new facility means that anyone who needs the help of a carer can participate in Stadium events

The facility is strategically located on Level 3, opposite Aisle 331, on the most level and accessible floor of the stadium, and where the highest number of disabled seats is allotted.

Stadium Facilities Manager Darren Crossman explained: “A full review of space has recently been completed, which enabled us to allocate a suitable location for the toilet.

A contribution from the Rugby World Cup (England 2015) has assisted us in being able to proceed, and install the Changing Places as a stand-alone project, and have it open ready for the rugby kick-off in September.”

Kelvin Grimes, Clos-o-Mat’s Changing Places project manager added:

“With a capacity of nearly 75,000 people, and 1 in 5 of the population being registered disabled, it is great that the Millennium Stadium has opened a Changing Places to accommodate people who need a carer to help them with their personal hygiene.

The Stadium is joining Wembley in installing these toilets. We hope more stadia will step up to the plate and follow this exemplary approach to inclusivity, which is ‘desirable’ and judged best practice under current guidance and legislation.”
