Changing Spaces in South Tyneside

Changing Spaces are designed for people with complex needs and their carers so people can be supported to change with dignity. 

They are available in buildings across South Tyneside. They are available for people who need them - even if they don't use the services available in the rest of the building.  

The project was funded by South Tyneside Learning Disabilities Partnership Board. Equal People (an involvement group for people with learning disabilities) designed the logo to promote this service.
