Stadium MK is pleased to announce the opening of three Stoma-friendly toilets as the Club continues the goal to provide access to all.

The announcement comes as part of Level Playing Fields Unite for Access campaign. The facilities will provide a safe, clean space, with clear signage, as well as supporting those with additional needs as Stadium MK aims to raise the public awareness of the stigma many Ostomates face.

It is estimated that one in 335 people in the UK have a stoma. Often referred to as ostomates, these people (who can be adults and children) have a ‘hidden’ condition and they have additional needs when using the toilet. Accessible toilets often lack the facilities to make Stoma bag changing safe and easy.

Inadequate accessible toilet facilities act as a form of social exclusion, MK Dons look to combat this with the introduction of Stoma-friendly toilets at Stadium MK.

The Stoma facilities will feature:

  • Hook on door – To hang clothing, handbags and luggage while changing stoma bags. This provides more space in the cubicle.
  • Shelf space – To enable ostomates to spread out their items easily and avoid having to use unsanitary surfaces.
  • Mirror – To enable users to see their stoma while changing their appliances.
  • Disposal bin in every cubicle – To avoid embarrassment for men and women having to dispose of their stoma bag in public view.
  • Accessible #stomafriendly toilet signage – To highlight the right of ostomates to use the toilet. Reduces risk of hostility for ostomates when using an accessible toilet.
