Today we launch the first of 3 new publications. Update 2020: These are now available to purchase via our Membership and Support section.
The first one below is about Equality and legal requirements.
I want to thank you again for your time and for the fantastic documents on your site, they’re really well structured and so much nicer to read than the AD M. – [Robert Harper (Art and Design student).]
Guide to Accessible Toilet Standards and Equality Act Requirements.
This 17 page guide is to help raise awareness about the standards, guidelines and equality laws surrounding the provision of toilets for use by disabled people and their carers/assistants.
We hope you will find the information useful if you:
- Are passionate about improving the accessibility and usefulness of toilets for disabled people through campaigns and personal discussions.
- Wish to raise discussions with a business concerning a difficulty you have had accessing or using provided toilets.
- Provide toilets for disabled staff, visitors, customers and volunteers – and wish to provide the highest possible standard of ‘away from home’ toilets.
- Are committed to the welcoming provision of a truly accessible toilet to demonstrate your commitment to social inclusion and equality.
