The Shire of Collie is committed to providing universal access where practical. Universal access is a term that relates to more than wheelchair access to a facility. It is a well thought out and planned path of travel that includes patterns of interaction, such as communicating with staff, which make the whole experience easy for people from diverse backgrounds and cultures to travel. Universal access encompasses creating ease and welcome every second of the interacting or visiting experience for as many people as possible.
The Shire of Collie has promoted universal access in its own operations and to business in Collie. Information on access to businesses in Collie can be found on the You’re Welcome Access WA page.
A Changing Place is a secure and clean bathroom specifically designed for people who need space and assistance to manage their bathroom needs while in the community, and for whom universal access toilets are not suitable.
The Collie Changing Place is located at the swimming pool precinct, Throssell Street, Collie (parking access is from Steere Street).
Access to this Changing Place is via a Master Locksmiths Access Key (MLAK). To gain access to this Changing Place you will need to apply for an MLAK through the Shire of Collie during office hours.
This Changing Place forms part of a state-wide network. Other Changing Places across WA can be located on the National Public Toilet Map or the Changing Places Australia Toilet Map. You can use either of these maps to plan your journey.
Please follow the links for instructions about how to use the ceiling hoist and change table.
Further information on this Changing Place can be obtained by contacting the Shire of Collie on 9734 9000 during office hours.
Access and Inclusion Planning
The Disability Services Act 1993 requires the Shire to have an Access and Inclusion Plan which must meet the requirements of the Act and the Commission, be lodged with the Commission, and undergo a full review at least every five years. Accordingly the shire has established an Access and Inclusion Committee to assist and advise on the development and implementation of the Access and Inclusion Plan.
The Shire of Collie encourages comments and suggestions from residents relating to the Access and Inclusion Plan at any time.
Please share your ideas for making our community inclusive and encouraging of the differences and similarities between us all.
