More than half of the people in Wales think the Welsh Government should take action to open or keep open public toilets.
The report published today by the Welsh Senate of Older People, is the latest part of the group's 'P is for People' campaign.
The 'Public Toilet Provision Research' survey also shows:
- 85 per cent of respondents said they would pay a small fee (20p) to use a public toilet
- 80 per cent of respondents said that if the public toilet they used most was not available, it would have an impact on their lifestyle
- 19 per cent of respondents said not having a public toilet would mean they were able to go out less often or that they wouldn't go out at all
- 18 per cent of respondents said the absence of public toilets would be 'difficult, awkward, inconvenient or stressful'
- 18 per cent of respondents feel action is needed to keep current public toilets clean and combat vandalism
Older people's charity Age Cymru has welcomed the publishing of the Welsh Senate of Older People's toilet report.
The Welsh Government says councils don't have to provide them but its working with them to increase the number.
