Fair toilet facilities and improvements for the disabled at Hall for Cornwall

Mel Sedgwick started this petition to Julien Boast Director, and Trustees HFC Hall for Cornwall (Hall for Cornwall) and

Simple amendments to toileting facilities for disabled people. This does not simply mean a larger toilet area with a larger door to allow a wheelchair access, but a ceiling hoist and changing bench for those who simply can't get out of a wheelchair to use standard facilities.

For this petition I am going to submit a section from a post by the mother of a disabled normal young boy and the difficulties he faces every day with regard to NORMAL bodily functions. An evening out to see a show with his friends may prove frustrating and severely disappointing by the lack of toilet facilities for someone who needs a simple Hoist and Bench and the room to use them.

 

When you set out to increase the space inside the theatre it probably seemed quite a task. Getting your plans passed has probably been challenging at times. Yet you have been determined and you have made it happen.

A fully accessible toilet with a changing bench and ceiling hoist really doesn’t seem much of a challenge in comparison. It actually seems very straightforward.

So please, listen to my plea. Know that my heart aches every time my son wants to see a theatre show. He would love to have a snack and a drink with his friends before watching a show. His friends would love to enjoy it with him too.

So please, make it so."

I appeal to one and all to let Hall For Cornwall and all other entertainment area's such as theatre's cinema's etc to look seriously into making their facilities available to everyone without discrimination and lead the way in making this kind of disabled toilet the 'NORM' across the board.
