RADAR key scheme - access to toilets for disabled people

There are around 9000 public toilets for people with a disability throughout the country which are usually kept locked. The National Key Scheme offers disabled people independent access to these toilets by using a special key which can be purchased from the Royal Association for Disability Rights (RADAR) shop.

While RADAR would like all  accessible toilets to be kept unlocked many need to be locked to stop misuse and damage. A listing of all RADAR Key Scheme toilets around the UK can also be purchased from the RADAR shop
