The No More Floor Campaign is fundraising for Just4Children to install a fully equipped disabled changing facility in The Royal Priors shopping centre in Leamington Spa.
There are hundreds of families who on a daily basis need to be hoisted from their wheelchairs or need a bigger space in order to use the toilet. Regular disabled toilets are not big enough for a wheelchair and parents and carers. In addition, most do not have a changing bench or a hoist.
Children and adults in this day and age should not have to have their incontinence pads or nappies changed on a dirty toilet floor but should be allowed the dignity of a proper changing facility.
When users reach a certain weight it is very difficult and often dangerous for them to be manually lifted from their chairs to be changed, especially lifting them down onto the floor and back again. This often results in accidents.
Installing something as simple as a changing bed or bench and an electric hoist to lift the user is life changing and more dignified for the user.
