Young Kite Markers make a change

Young Kite Markers have been working with parents who have children in their lives with an additional need.

Parents said it was really difficult when they went out with their son or daughter to find a changing area that was big enough to change their older child.




Young Kite Markers heard that Hallwood Health Centre were refurbishing the toilet facilities and baby changing area and wanted to make sure that they included suitable changing facilities for older children.




Young Kite Markers met with the manager and explained the work they have been doing with parents and the issue with changing facilities.

The manager listened to the young kite markers and agreed them. She said she would speak to the people who were designing the new toilets to see if they could include space for changing older disabled children.



This did happen and now the good news is the baby changing facilities will be purpose built for older children.

Young Kite Markers have now added baby changing facilities to their list of things to look at.
