Changing Places

The City of Melton has two Changing Places Facilities

  • Melton Library and Learning Hub, 31 McKenzie Street, Melton
  • Melton Waves Leisure Centre, 206 Coburns Road, Melton

Using a toilet is a basic human right that most people take for granted. For many people with profound disabilities leaving their home can often mean planning trips around their need to use a toilet, and being able to access a toilet equipped with a hoist and change table.

The Melton Library and Learning Hub has a fully accessible toilet, complete with adult change table and hoist and is located on the second level, at the west end of the Library, via the lift.

Melton Waves Leisure Centre has a ceiling hoist, toilet, space for carers and an adult-sized, adjustable changing table and is located near the entrance. 

We encourage trained carers who plan to use the facility to follow standard OHS practices and remember to bring along the person's own sling.
