It’s a good thing then, that Lancaster’s first publicly accessible Changing Places toilet facility is available at the Cornerstone, just off Lancaster's Dalton Square in Sulyard Street. The new Changing Place, in the heart of the city, has been open since a major refurbishment of the old Methodist Church building was completed at the end of 2013.

The fitting out of the Changing Places facility was aided by funding from Lancashire County Council’s Learning Disability Development Fund and The Charities Aid Foundation Access to Volunteering Fund.
Morecambe also has a Changing Place, situated next to the DanLo toilets in the Festival Market Car Park, LA4 4DW. You can get a key from the Visitor Information Centre at the Platform or from the Festival Market Office. This facility was opened thanks to funding from Lancashire County Council’s “Aiming High for Disabled Children” fund two years ago.
