Local councils and not-for-profit organisations are invited to apply for grants of up to $100,000 to build new Changing Places facilities in areas where they’re needed.
Changing Places are larger than standard accessible toilets that have extra features and more space to meet the needs of people with a disability.
The facilities help people with complex disabilities to participate in their local community and access recreational and tourist attractions, parks, community spaces, and entertainment and sporting venues.
The Victorian Government is investing $2 million in new accessible bathrooms across the state, to boost access and equality for Victorians with a disability.
The Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing Martin Foley announced the grants at an information forum on the benefits of Changing Places and the government’s commitment to universal design.
