Join us for our first free meet up of 2019, hosted by the Disability Cooperative Network for museums (DCN) and the Tate Modern.

Background: Toilets are a vital part of any visit to a museum. However, their demand often outweighs the number available at any time. Information is vital to users of accessible and Changing Places (CP) toilets, including frequency of the facilities, their location and regular signage thus increasing participation of disabled people working in and visiting museums.

During this event we will:

Explore how inaccessible toilet facilities can create barriers to museum visits and solutions to increasing toilet provision and awareness to staff.

Examine how organisations are raising awareness and increasing their accessible and Changing Places toilet provision.

Examine accessibility guidelines in relation to BS8300 Part M:2018 relating to toilet provision.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to talk to staff regarding the Tate Moderns Changing Places toilet and see the facilities for themselves.

Outcomes you will take away from the event:

Understanding the importance of accessible and Changing Places facilities in public spaces. How to create information useful to disabled people about the facilities you have.

Understanding what you need to install a Changing Places toilet.

Develop knowledge on what resources and champions are out there to support you when developing accessible and CP toilet provision in your organisation.

Who should attend?

This event is aimed at decision makers (managers, operational, directors etc) working in museums and heritage organisations, who are interested in access and inclusion of disabled people in their service provision and as a workplace.
