Changing Places

This feedback process has concluded.

Darebin City Council has committed to constructing four Changing Places in Darebin.

Late in 2017 we asked for your feedback regarding locations for these facilities.

We are proud to announce that the first Changing Places facility is located in Kelvin Grove, opposite Preston Library.

Please join us to celebrate the opening of the facility on the Changing Places Awareness Day!


When: Friday 19 July 2019

Time: 11.00 to 12.00

Venue: Preston City Hall, 284 Gower Street, Preston.


The event will be graphically recorded and the High Street Bells Choir will perform.

The Changing Places facility launch will provide opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge the advocacy of the Darebin Disability Advisory Committee in making this facility a reality in Darebin.

The event will also give us a chance to discuss access and inclusion issues in Darebin and plan for the future.

Register to the event.


What are Changing Places?

Changing Places facilities are larger than standard accessible toilets. They have extra features including an adult-sized changing table, ceiling hoist system, and enough space for two people either side of a peninsula toilet, all in a safe and clean environment.

Changing Places can only be accessed with MLAK (Master Locksmith Access Key).

How do Changing Places Facilities benefit the community?

Changing Places facilities will support the 326,400 Victorians, with high support needs to participate in their local community and access recreational attractions, parks, community spaces, entertainment and sporting venues. One in five Darebin residents have identified as having a permanent or long-term disability (Darebin Household Survey 2014).

Lack of appropriate toileting facilities is a fundamental barrier to social inclusion, and can prevent people from accessing community spaces and activities.
