Accessible public toilets
Accessible public toilets can be accessed using a MLAK Key that fits into specifically designed locks allowing 24 hour access. Keys can only be obtained from the Master Locksmiths Association. If you are eligible you will need to provide a letter of authorisation from a doctor, disability organisation, local council or community health centre.
