RADAR National Key Scheme (NKS)

Toilets for disabled people are often locked up to help prevent them being vandalised. But in doing this it can also stop those in need from gaining access to the facilities. To assist those who require access to these special accessible toilet facilities (across the whole of the country) the 'RADAR key scheme' was introduced.

RADAR keys may also be used on other facilities - eg restricting vehicular access to Lancing and Sompting Cemetery allowing disabled people to unlock the double gates to take their cars in.

You can also find out more about the RADAR accessible toilets National Key Scheme, and find lists of RADAR accessible facilities nationwide, on the Direct Enquiries - The Nationwide Access Register website.

Where to obtain a RADAR key

RADAR keys are available from our council office at the:

How to obtain a RADAR key

For a free RADAR key all applicants must supply two pieces of evidence to:

  • confirm their disability - eg proof of incapacity benefit/disability living allowance or blue parking badge for people with physical impairment
  • confirm they are a resident of either Adur or Worthing

If the two pieces of evidence (above) cannot be provided then a £5.00 charge will apply.

What are Changing Places toilets?

Standard accessible toilets do not meet the needs of all people with a disability.

People with profound and multiple learning disabilities, as well people with other physical disabilities such as spinal injuries, muscular dystrophy and multiple sclerosis often need extra facilities to allow them to use the toilets safely and comfortably.

Changing Places toilets are different to standard accessible toilets (or 'disabled toilets') as they have extra features and more space to meet the needs of people who use them.

There are currently Changing Places toilets at:

  • Brooklands, Western Road car park, Worthing, BN15 8SA (see opening times)
  • Promenade, opposite Dome cinema, Marine Parade, Worthing, BN11 3PT (open 9am to 5pm all year)

Note: The Changing Places facilities are only accessible between the publicised opening times with a RADAR key.
