Apply for a Radar key

A Radar key is used to unlock accessible toilets.

There are thousands of accessible toilets across the country, including in bus and train stations, shopping centres, restaurants, and public buildings. But many are kept locked to prevent vandalism.

Having your own Radar key means you can use an accessible toilet without having to find someone to unlock it for you.

Getting a Radar key

You can apply for a Radar key online. It costs £3.

You'll need to collect your Radar key from the Customer Centre at Middlesbrough House. Please allow 3 working days for us to get your key ready for collection.

Changing Places toilets

You can also use the Radar key to access Changing Places toilets at: Albert Park, Middlesbrough Sports Village, Newham Grange Farm, Rainbow Centre, the Riverside Stadium, and Stewart Park.

The Changing Places toilet in the bus station uses an electronic fob, not a key. You'll need to join the free membership scheme to get a fob. You'll need to provide a form of ID and evidence that you're eligible to join the scheme. For example, because you or someone you care for has a disability.
