Sensory World is looking to further develop a toilet into a changing space with adult changing bed and ceiling hoist. Sensory World was founded in 2014 and has proven to be a success with visitors from different parts of the country. By developing the existing toilet would mean a wall needs to be removed and girders put in for strength, equipment installed I. E radiator, changing bed,hoist and to be fully tiled and decorated. To have this facility would mean we can advertise on the changing space site so we be a fully inclusive centre not only for those who visit us but can be available for anyone visiting Dewsbury.

What we'll deliver:

  • A new Disabled Toilet.
  • A more accessible space.

Why it's a great idea:

The benefits from developing this toilet would mean it would be accessible to those needing hoisting and therefor would be able to visit Sensoryworld and use the activities available.

Steps to get it done:

  • Buying equipment
  • Building work.
  • Tiling and decorating
