Read our latest blog post about one of our fantastic ReCHarge volunteers

Here at Charlie House we have many fabulous volunteers who give their time freely. We decided to catch up with one of our regular volunteers, Suzie, and dive into why she chose Charlie House, what her favourite things are about volunteering, and what she would say to someone thinking about volunteering...

Recharge changing space 2

Bespoke accessible changing area

The changing space conveniently located at Café Recharge on level one in the Bon Accord centre is available to anyone that requires the use of a changing plinth and hoist. Easily accessed to the rear of the café, staff will gladly direct you to its location. On entering via the sliding door, the changing plinth is height adjustable, and the charging Hoist is easily accessed around the whole area. There is sufficient space to move around for hoisting with one or two carers assisting.

The facility is open to anyone, whether you are using the café or not. Although this is not a registered Changing place due to there not being a wc facility there are public toilets located close by the café within the Bon Accord Shopping centre on the same level.

“It’s great having this changing facility to use. Being able to change my son in a suitable space with the correct equipment means if I’m in the Bon Accord centre I don’t have to venture to the alternative Changing Place facilities which are located at least 10-20 mins walk away. A short walk to some can be a very challenging situation to families like us.”
