Changing Places Toilets in Adelaide – Find a Location in South Australia

Changing Places provide suitable facilities for people who cannot use standard accessible toilets to meet the needs of people with complex disabilities and their carers. It gives people with disabilities a greater choice of options for outings so they aren’t excluded.

A Changing Places facility allows people with high support needs to fully participate in the community. This may include people with an acquired brain injury, spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, spina bifida, and motor neurone disease, as well as many other people with a disability.

“It is a basic human right to be able to access a clean, safe and private place to go to the toilet.”

Changing Places toilets provide:

  • a height-adjustable adult-sized change table
  • a constant-charging ceiling track hoist system
  • a centrally-located peninsula toilet
  • circulation spaces as defined in the design specifications
  • an automatic door with a clear opening of 950 mm at a minimum (1100 mm for beach and lake locations)
  • a privacy screen

Some toilets also include an MLAK system and/or shower. 

What is MLAK?

The Master Locksmiths Access Key (MLAK) system is a Master Locksmiths Association of Australasia (MLAA) initiative that allows people with disability access to dedicated public facilities. Many Changing Places facilities require a Master Locksmiths Access Key (MLAK) in order to use the facility, and to keep the facility in clean and good working order for people who need to use the facilities.

An MLAK can be ordered from the Master Locksmiths Association of Australasia Ltd and in some locations can be borrowed.
