If you are caring for an elderly or disabled person who uses a wheelchair when out and about this is a must have item.

 I know how difficult is was to take my mother in law into a normal public toilet, no space and very difficult to do.

The National Key Scheme (NKS) offers disabled people independent access to locked public toilets around the country.

Toilets fitted with National Key Scheme (NKS) locks can now be found in shopping centres, pubs, cafés, department stores, bus and train stations and many other locations in most parts of the country.

They can only be accessed using one of these keys as it prevents vandalism from members of the public.

There is also a guide for anyone who travels more and wants to know where these toilets can be found. The guide costs approx £14 and can be ordered via this link.

If you have a smart phone there is a FREE app available from the app store which will tell you where the toilets can be located.
