THE VICTORIAN Government is investing $2 million in new accessible bathrooms across the state, to boost access and equality for Victorians with a disability.
Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing Martin Foley urged local governments and not-for-profit organisations to apply for one of 20 grants to help build a Changing Place in their community.
Changing Places are larger than standard accessible toilets that have extra features and more space to meet the needs of people with a disability.
Each facility has a height-adjustable, adult-size changing bench, a tracking hoist system and space for two people in a safe and clean environment.
Applications are open until October 13.
