Disabled children 'lack changing facilities': Survey

By PA Reporter

Children with disabilities in Northern Ireland have been changed on the floor of public toilets because of lack of facilities, a survey has said.

Parents called for improved facilities after having to abandon day trips due to a shortage of properly equipped spaces in places like restaurants.

Research revealed that out of 2,200 surveyed, 57% had changed their child on the floor of a public toilet. It found that 97% said changing their child when out was a problem.
