• Roadchef are pleased to announce the opening of a Changing Places facility at our Norton Canes Service Area, on the M6 Toll.

     The new Changing Places facility at Norton Canes will provide customers with specialist equipment and more space than a conventional disabled facility, representing a significant investment by Roadchef.

    Installed by Clos-o-Mat, the market leader in away-from-home accessible toileting solutions, the room features a peninsular WC, height adjustable adult-sized changing bench, height-adjustable washbasin and a ceiling track hoist.

    More than 250,000 people in the UK need more room than is available in standard accessible toilets. Those with profound and multiple learning disabilities, and other physical disabilities - such as spinal injuries, muscular dystrophy and multiple sclerosis – also require extra equipment to use the toilets safely and comfortably. 

    Simon Turl, Roadchef CEO, explained: “Roadchef prides itself on providing the best service on the motorway network and it is important to us that all of our customers are able to comfortably use our facilities. We’re delighted to now be able to meet the needs of all people with a disability and we look forward to welcoming customers who are now able to take advantage of this facility at our Norton Canes site”

    Changing Places campaigner, Tony Clough MBE, further welcomed the addition: “I am delighted Roadchef has invested in this Changing Places facility. This move provides motorists travelling north and south on the M6 Toll with the best, most accessible facilities when they stop during their journeys.

    “Changing Places mean that families like mine, with someone who needs help with intimate care, can venture away from home, and relax.”
