The NSW Government understands some people with severe physical disability and their carers cannot use regular accessible toilets, and require adult-sized change tables and hoists.
Lift & Change facilities are larger than a standard accessible facility, have extra features and more space to meet the needs of people with disability and their carers.
The Lift & Change Facilities Trial is run by the NSW Government in partnership with Local Government NSW. The trial aims to promote the benefits of Lift & Change facilities and encourage positive, inclusive behaviour in local communities.
Local Government NSW is working with councils to identify sites where Lift & Change facilities can be installed with a co-contribution from the NSW Government.
The NSW Government provided a co-contribution of up to $35,000 to provide Lift & Change facilities in local communities.
The trial aims to demonstrate how Lift & Change facilities in varying locations work best, including at swimming centres, near beaches and in tourist information centres.
Shoalhaven, Campbelltown, Clarence Valley, Blue Mountains, Northern Beaches, Kiama, Orange, Cootamundra-Gundagai, Newcastle and Mid Coast councils have received co-contributions to develop Lift & Change facilities.
