Government grant to make it easier for Victorians with a disability to travel in the state

Hobsons Bay and Maribyrnong residents with a disability will be able to travel throughout Victoria with ease thanks to a new announcement from the state government.

Minister for Disability, Ageing and Carers Anthony Carbines announced grants to build 18 new, fully accessible public restrooms.

Grants up to $110,000 have been provided to local councils and not-for-profit community organisations to help build accessible restrooms with adult change tables and hoists.

Mr Carbines said: “These new Changing Places will open up even more of Victoria, allowing people with disability to enjoy the best

our state has to offer.”

”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.”
