Nowhere to go: improving the accessibility of public toilets

Wednesday, 8 May, 2019 - 14:00 to 16:00
Great Hall, Discovery Museum, Blandford Square, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 4JA

NU-KESS Knowledge Exchange Seminar Series

Poor provision of accessible public toilets is leaving disabled people with nowhere to go and excluding them from society. Research carried out with disabled people and carers has also highlighted that social attitudes are a major problem, particularly the failure to recognise ‘hidden’ disabilities.

In this seminar Newcastle University researchers who have been working with Silver Membership+ supporter Carers Northumberland and those most affected by this issue, will outline key innovations in design and provision of accessible toilets – ideas now being discussed with the region’s local authorities.

There will be an opportunity for networking following the presentations.
