Changing Spaces Campaign

The Changing Spaces Campaign is a parent-led advocacy group inspired by Changing Places UK “who seek to promote community inclusion by raising awareness around the need for adult-sized changing tables and lifts for persons with physical disabilities and limited access to proper restrooms supports.”

The Changing Spaces Contest is a design competition to make airport restrooms accessible for people with disabilities who need an adult-sized changing table and/or lift for the changing station. “The competition is open to airports who wish to submit concepts that highlight the following: 1) efficient use of disability restroom space including wheelchair turning radii, and 2) effective incorporation of adult size, height-adjustable changing tables.” Start construction before the end of 2018 before you submit your application. Go to Changing Spaces Contest Rules to learn more about the competition. Submission deadline is August 18, 2017. First prize is $10,000.

In May 2017, National Public Radio’s Robert Siegel spoke with Sabrina Kimball, founder of Universal Changing Places, an organization that advocates for public areas to have adult changing tables for disabled adults and the elderly. To obtain the transcript or listen to the program, go to Advocates Support Efforts To Install Public Changing Tables For Disabled Adults.
