Changing Places are a locked facility that provides more space than a normal accessible toilet, to allow adequate room for the additional equipment required, as below, and carers to be present to aid the user.
Severely disabled people, including those with profound and multiple learning disabilities have access to these facilities to meet their needs.
What equipment is provided in the Manchester Airport Changing Places?
There is a facility in each terminal; all are located air-side within the departure lounge.
Manchester Airport does not provide slings and we advise customers to bring their own sling with them to enable them to use the facility. Manchester Airport’s facility uses a hoist system where loop fastening slings are compatible. The hoist system should not be operated with keyhole style clip slings. Users are advised to always check the sling before use for any damage including fraying, holes, tears and stitching.
Customers should return the hoist it to the charging point after use so that the next person will be able to use.
Sling safe working load 31 stone.
