Changing Places are quickly growing in Western Australia, with 15 now open and many more planned to be built soon.
Most Changing Places are locked with a Master Locksmith Access Key (MLAK), the same key used to lock Liberty Swings. However, a free access key for Changing Places is now available for WA Companion Cardholders, with funding by the State Government of Western Australia.
The offer was officially launched by Hon. Stephen Dawson, Minister for Disability Services on 17th April, and funding is available until 31st July 2018.
The facilities provide a secure, private space for people living with disability when out and about in the community, featuring an adult-sized, height adjustable change table, hoist and space for two people to assist.
Personalised order forms for the free MLAK have been sent to every WA Companion Cardholder in the most recent edition of ‘Your Companion’, and cardholders are encouraged to take up the free offer if in need of Changing Places. Simply complete the order form provided and send it to Master Locksmiths before 31st July 2018.
After 31st July, MLAK keys can be purchased form Master Locksmiths. Please visit www.masterlocksmiths.com.au/mlak.php.
For those who do not have a Companion Card, a free MLAK can be applied for on a case-by-case basis. For information on how to apply please call 08 9242 5544 or email [email protected].
