Worksop set for Changing Places

A brand new Changing Places toilet is to be installed in Worksop, as part of the refurbishment works of the Public Toilets on Bridge Street. People with profound and multiple learning disabilities, as well people with other physical disabilities such as spinal injuries, muscular dystrophy and multiple sclerosis often need extra equipment and space to allow them to use the toilets safely and comfortably. Changing Places toilets are designed to meet these needs.

In addition to the instillation of a Changing Places Toilet, refurbishment works will be carried out on the existing toilet facilities.

The toilets will be closed from 1st January 2020 for 12 weeks whilst the works are undertaken.

Cllr Simon Greaves, Leader of Bassetlaw District Council said:

“I am glad that work will soon be starting on a new changing places toilet for Worksop. This facility will allow those who need more space and extra equipment to be able to use the toilets safely and more comfortably. I am very grateful to the Crossing for providing alterative toilet facilities whilst these works are being undertaken.”
