We plan trips around access and personal care, so this makes visiting the RAF Museum accessible for us. Anita Heir
‘Having the Changing Places toilet has enabled us to plan the day and we’re not restricted on time. We have the freedom to plan a day out for all our members and the facilities are beautiful.’ Tracey Cook
‘The Museum’s new facility caters for every disability, it has lots of room, is very bright and the bed caters for larger people. It will be really helpful for families with a disabled member, it will give them the opportunity to enjoy a day out together when they know the facility is available.’ Sandra Betts
‘It’s vital when we go out that we have facilities for people to use. Changing Places toilets is something we can’t always find but having one so close will make days out so much better.’ Julie Green
‘Changing Places are a vital facility for the disabled community and their carers. There are over 1,600 Changing Places rooms in the UK, but this facility is one of the most beautifully designed with the mural of the sky. It’s a great facility for users and carers and ensures the Museum is an attractive day out for everyone.’ Nick Kent
