Wingham Wildlife Park has been experiencing huge increases in the volume of visitors as a result of their careful selection of some of the worlds most beautiful and endangered species.
When they kicked off a project to update their visitor toilet facilities for 2017, they had the foresight to include a spacious area for a disabled changing room. Wealden Rehab were proud to have been invited to give advice in regard of the final fit-out, and were able to equip this with the appropriate equipment to be able to receive Changing Places approval.
Now their disabled visitors are able to spend all day at the park, in the company of some of the rarest and engaging animals, confident in knowledge that their personal hygiene can be attended to in this fantastic Changing Place.
