Funding for Changing Places facilities in local government areas

The Department of Social Services is offering up to one-third of the cost to build Changing Places facilities in Local Government Areas that currently do not have these facilities.

Changing Places are accessible toilets with extra features and more space to meet the needs of people with disability and their carers.  These facilities include:

  • a height-adjustable adult-sized change table
  • a constant-charging ceiling track hoist system
  • a centrally-located peninsula toilet
  • more circulation space than standard accessible toilets
  • an automatic door with a clear opening of 950mm at minimum
  • a privacy screen.

This funding can supplement other sources of funding, including the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program and the Growing Regions Program.  Local government applicants are also encouraged to consider including a Changing Places facility in their upcoming community infrastructure plans.
