South Western Railway opens a Changing Place toilet with enhanced accessibility

The Changing Place offers enhanced comfort, convenience, safety, and dignity for customers and their caregivers. Over 250,000 people in the UK could benefit from such facilities. Key features include an adjustable changing bench, a ceiling hoist system, a spacious toilet, a privacy screen, an adjustable washbasin, and a paper roll dispenser.

SWR station colleagues have received training to support customers and maintain the facility with those as they are rolled out.

Calming Spaces in waiting rooms aim to create a more inclusive environment for neurodiverse or non-visible disabilities. Features include sensory panels, lighting, plants, and bench seating. Brockenhurst station has been identified as one of the first of these.

We look forward to these being rolled out across the SWR network across their stations.
