Aim to be achieved through Changing Places Toilet Project

Our aim is to raise £5,000 toward the cost of creating and equipping a Changing Places Toilet in the Atholl Baptist Centre, Pitlochry. Over £75,000 is required to do the structural work and purchase the equipment to be installed in the changing area.
We aim to highlight the needs of a quarter of a million disabled people who have no access, in public settings, to toilet and changing facilities and to create such a facility in Highland Perthshire.
Our aim is to make a positive contribution through this CPT facility that will change the lives of people frequently excluded from the everyday enjoyment of being able to go out for the day or to travel a distance for a few days to a holiday location.
Our Goal £5000 £4545

CPT - what does this stand for? CHANGING PLACES TOILETS

What are these? Who needs them? Where are they found? Want to know more?

WHAT CHANGES?
- the available space changes. Standard accessible toilets (or "disabled toilets") do not provide enough room to accommodate a wheelchair and two carers or a centrally placed toilet with room either side
- the facilities change with the provision of a height adjustable changing bench, a ceiling track hoist, a peninsular toilet, and shower facilities
- personal horizons change as the possibility of getting out and about for day trips and holidays can be a reality, which many of us take for granted

WHO FINDS THESE LIFE CHANGING?
- anyone with profound or multiple learning disabilities, as well people with other physical disabilities such as spinal injuries, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy
- the quarter of a million disabled people in the UK with limited availability of an appropriate toilet changing facility
- people who are presently excluded from a wide range of activities because of their disabilities

WHERE ARE CHANGING PLACES TOILETS TO BE FOUND?
- a network of Changing Places Toilets exists across Scotland but there is not one in Highland Perthshire
- the Atholl Centre in Pitlochry, a popular tourist town and centre for a wider rural community, have made plans to create a unique Highland Perthshire CPT
- as the Atholl Baptist Centre celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year, it is marking the occasion by building a CPT in their premises off Atholl Road, Pitlochry, Perthshire, PH16 5BX

HOW CAN YOU BE INVOLVED IN THIS PROJECT TO CHANGE PEOPLE’S LIVES?
- spread the news that the Atholl Baptist Centre, even although it cannot accommodate guests during this Covid-19 pandemic, is still trusting God to enable them to begin the building work to create and equip the CPT in late autumn 2020. An App on a mobile phone enables a person to locate the Atholl Centre CPT.
- donate to the Crowdfunding Appeal to show you too want to give dignity, show sensitivity and provide hygienic and safe toilet facilities which can change people’s lives
