Whittlesea council is among the grant recipients for new accessible restrooms across the state.
The grants were announced this week to fund 18 new, fully accessible public restrooms through the Victorian government’s Changing Places program.
The grants are valued at up to $110,000 each and will allow for the construction of restrooms including adult change tables and hoists.
Disability, Ageing and Carers Minister Anthony Carbines said the grants would allow more freedom of travel for those living with disabilities.
“These new Changing Places will open up even more of Victoria, allowing people with disability to enjoy the best our state has to offer,” Mr Carbines said.
”Changing Places make a real difference in people’s lives by removing barriers to getting out and about – whether close to home or at major tourist sites.”
Whittlesea council’s project will be called the Whittlesea, Banyule & Nillumbik Marveloo.
