Changing Places are toilet facilities for people with profound or multiple disabilities which are fitted with specialist equipment including a hoist and changing bench. They provide enough space for up to two carers to support the person with a disability to use the Changing Place.
There is a network of Changing Places across the country and Leeds City Council is proud to support the national campaign. Please check each venue’s own website before travelling for up-to-date information.

RADAR – National Key Scheme
The National Key Scheme (NKS), previously known as the Royal Association for Disability Rights (RADAR) Scheme, was developed because some public toilets designed for disabled people had to be locked to prevent damage and misuse. This has been countered by the toilets being locked separately from other toilets. The scheme aims to provide disabled key holders with independent access to toilets and increases the likelihood of the facilities being in a usable state.
You can buy a key for £2 at any of our One Stop Centres and Community Hubs. In addition, Armley, Beeston, Crossgates, Gildersome and Holt Park libraries have keys that can be borrowed to use the disabled toilets whilst visiting the premises. No proof of disability is required to purchase or borrow a key.
