Woburn Safari Park in Milton Keynes, England has been criticised on social media for its poor disabled toilet provision.

A recent visitor to Woburn Safari Park reported having to spend a considerable amount of time trying to find a member of staff to access a first aid room to change her 6 year old child's nappy.

The first aid room which provides a changing bench does not offer a hoist or soap for hand washing. There is also no toilet available in the room for children or adults who can use a toilet with sling and hoist support.

Following a recent comment to Woburn's Facebook page it appears that the poor toilet provision has been raised on numerous occasions previously, with other parents suggesting that earlier comments have been deleted and email requests for the provision of bench and hoist equipment ignored.

Firefly has contacted Woburn Safari Park for comment and to highlight how it is possibile to provide bench and hoist equipment within existing facilities.
