Causeway Coast & Glens Borough Council are the latest local authority to take delivery of their AccessoLoo-built mobile Changing Places units. Ordered as one van based and a second trailer-based solution, the council aims to have coverage of all of the outdoor eventing needs – for what is Northern Ireland’s largest outdoor eventing council. Designed and constructed by AccessoLoo, the units come complete with a toilet, changing table, ceiling hoist, sink, shower, hot/cold water as well as heating. With onboard batteries and water tanks, the mobile Changing Places are fully self-sufficient and can accommodate short, medium, and longer-run events that will cater to every time of disability need.
“Delivering these two vehicles to the council is an additional success story for AccessoLoo” said Michael Holden as he chatted to Mayor Cllr. Ivor Wallace during the official launch. To have facilities designed and built by disabled people as a resource to reduce the barriers that the disabled community face is a win-win for everyone involved.
As this is just one of the projects currently running with Causeway Coast & Glens the Mayor, Cllr. Ivor Wallace added, “We continue to increase the number of Changing Places facilities in the area and having these vehicles as part of our fleet is something everyone welcomes.”
