About the Event

Changing Places Webinar: Accessing £30m Changing Places Funding, Regulation Compliance & Insights into Retrofits. 

Free webinar, 9th September 2021, 11:30am – 12:15pm BST.

Join us on Thursday 9th September for a Changing Places webinar, providing advice for your organisation in accessing the £30m funding pot, regulation compliance and the challenges of refurbishments, in partnership with Kerry Thompson, Disability Advocate.

Having been involved with the Changing Places campaign for over a decade now, Innova’s goal is to provide simple solutions for organisations looking to enhance their accessibility for toileting away from home. Having fitted out over 100 Changing Places, from football stadiums to shopping centres, to schools and tourist attractions, Innova’s experts are looking to share their insights and know-how on installs, compliance and accessing funding, partnering with Kerry Thompson, who leads on the Changing Places campaign.

The government have now made a £30m Changing Places fund available to install more facilities in existing public venues – new and refurbishments. With over 250,000 disabled people in the UK, businesses are missing out on potential revenue from those with no suitable, clean toilet facilities.

If you are a contractor, architect, retailer or local authority planner, this is your opportunity to get all of the latest advice and information on the enforced regulations as well as knowledge of how to access the funding.
