New adult change facility at Kiama Harbour

NSW department of Family and Community Services logoCouncil has constructed a new Adult Change Facility in Blowhole Point Road, Kiama, under the NSW State Government's "Lift & Change Facilities Grants Program".  The Program funded by the NSW Department of Family and Community Services, and administered by Local Government NSW, has contributed 45% of the costs to the project with Kiama Council covering the remaining costs.  It provides much needed assistance for people who have significant disability, and their carers.Logo for Local Government NSW

The new facility is annexed to two existing Accessible Unisex Toilets, and provides a fold-down, height-adjustable adult change table, an overhead hoist for full room coverage, a corner toilet for right-hand transfer and a hand basin.  The change table and hoist have Safe Working Loads of 180 kg.  A Master Locksmiths Association Key (MLAK) is required for access to the Adult Change Facility, but the Accessible Toilets are open during normal working hours.

If you do not have a MLAK key, you can borrow one from:

    * Council during normal business hours (8:45am – 4:15pm, Mon – Fri) by visiting Council’s Customer Services in the main administration building at 11 Manning St, Kiama

    * Kiama Visitor Information Centre (9am to 5pm, 7 days a week), Blowhole Point Rd, Kiama.

You will be required to provide photo I.D. and provide contact details and agree to cover the cost of replacing the key if you do not return it.
