Bayswater Waves is proud to announce that a brand new state-of-the-art Changing Places facility is now available for eligible patrons at Bayswater Waves.
What are Changing Places?
Changing Places is a secure, clean facility for people with disability who need space and assistance to use the bathroom when out and about in the community. Changing Places are locked using the Master Locksmith Access Key (MLAK) key system. Using this system helps keep the Changing Places network secure, safe and reserved for people who need them.
Who can access a key?
People with disability who need assistance using a toilet or change facility or people using specialised medical appliances who may need additional time, space or privacy for this equipment can access Changing Places. Facilities will be used by:
- Family, friends and carers of the person/s with disability who assist the person/s with personal care tasks.
- Paid support workers who have a client/clients that require assistance with personal care tasks.
- Disability services organisations whose staff accompany clients that require assistance with personal care tasks in the community.
- The unpaid carers, family or friends of people who require assistance with personal care tasks.
- Others approved on a case by case basis by the City.
