A new ‘Changing Places’ facility for people with a disability is now under construction at Broome Recreation and Aquatic Centre.

Shire Manager Sport and Recreation, Casey Zepnick, says Changing Places are secure, clean facilities for people with a disability who need space and assistance to use the bathroom when out and about in the community.

“Changing Places are not standard accessible toilets – they include a hoist, adult-size height adjustable changing table, automatic door and space for two people to assist the user with their needs,” Mr Zepnick says.

The Shire has contributed $35,000 to the project and secured a further $75,000 through the Changing Places program administered by WA Local Government Association and National Disability Services.

Local firm Broome Builders is carrying out the construction which is due for completion by Christmas.
