Bayside has a Changing Places toilet and change facility at the back of the 21 Well Street car park, Brighton, to ensure people who can’t use a standard accessible toilet have the facilities they need in the Church Street shopping precinct.
There is an accessible car space adjacent to the facility. The facility can also be accessed from Church Street through the pedestrian walkway between 82 and 86 Church Street, opposite the pedestrian crossing.
Changing Places facilities are larger than standard accessible toilets and have extra features and more space to meet the needs of people with complex disabilities and their carers.
This facility includes an adult-sized change table, tracking ceiling hoist, privacy screen, peninsular-shaped toilet, shower, and a wide access door. If you plan to use the hoist, you will need to bring your own sling.
To access the facility you will need a Master Locksmiths Access Key (MLAK), which people with a disability or their carers can apply for. The key allows people with a disability access to dedicated public facilities throughout Australia.
To apply for a key, download the form from the Master Locksmiths website and have it signed by a doctor, a disability organisation or a community health centre.
You can send the form and payment to the Master Locksmiths Association, or find one of their local members in Bayside via their website using the Enter Suburb/Postcode at the top of their page.
