Changing Places- Suitable Facilities for All


About Changing Places

Thousands of people need Changing Places toilets to enable them to get out and about and enjoy the day-to-day activities many of us take for granted. The Changing Places Consortium launched its campaign in 2006 on behalf of those people who cannot use standard accessible toilets; this includes people with profound and multiple learning disabilities and their carers, as well as people with disabilities such as motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy.

Changing Places is sponsored officially by Aveso; a joint venture between United Care and Astor Bannerman who have a combined wealth of experience in the healthcare equipment industry. Aveso has sponsored the Changing Places Campaign since 2013. We aim to continue building relationships with the campaigners who work so hard and dedicate their lives to making Changing Places happen.

CAE – Centre for Accessible Environments


About the CAE

The Centre for Accessible Environments (CAE) has been the leading UK authority on inclusive design for over 40 years; providing consultancy, training, research and publications on building design and management.

United Care and CAE came together in 2015 to form a strategic partnership. As a strong figure in the inclusive world, the Centre for Accessible Environments (CAE) will work together with United Care to promote the Changing Places Campaign and the benefits of ensuring accessible toilets across the U.K.

 

Euan’s Guide- Disabled Access Reviews


About Euan’s Guide

Euan’s Guide features disabled access reviews from disabled people and their friends and families.

“The aim of Euan’s Guide is to empower disabled people by providing information that will give confidence and choices for getting out and about. Euan’s Guide is an alternative to hours of web searching and phone calls and, most importantly, removes the ‘fear of the unknown’ when visiting a venue for the first time.”  Euan MacDonald, Founder

As well as tourism and entertainment venues such as hotels, restaurants, bars, theatres & visitor attractions, Euan’s Guide features disabled access reviews of any place that is visited as part of everyday life such as post offices, railway stations, supermarkets and many others.

United Care is working in partnership with Euan’s Guide to provide a connection between Changing Places and the end-user. As the co-sponsor, we want to ensure that the Changing Places facilities are known about and are being used and reviewed. Working with Euan’s Guide secures a real value to businesses and venues installing a Changing Places facility.

 

Flat Spaces- Accessible Holiday Homes


About Flat Spaces

The vision is to provide high quality, fully accessible holiday accommodation for the severely disabled and less abled traveller by means of a UK and overseas network of well equipped, internally identical flat space bungalows.

The aim of the Charity is to provide purpose-built holiday and respite accommodation specifically designed to the highest standards, for the disabled, their carers and families.

The identical, three-bedroom bungalows are exceedingly spacious, fully equipped and will be in beautiful locations, or close to care facilities which will offer added benefits. Grants and sponsorship will enable a full spectrum of guests to enjoy our holidays, resulting in improved mental health and coping ability for a person and their families as a result of a break.

United Care provides Ceiling HoistCeiling Track, Grab Rail and Showering equipment for Flat Spaces Holiday Homes and will continue to support the Charity as it expands across the UK.
