How do I get a ‘radar key’ to access disabled toilets?

You will need to visit a customer service centre or call them on (01482) 393939, who will arrange for a key to be provided.

You will be required to provide proof of your disability or health issue that requires you to need access to disabled toilets. Radar keys are not just available to people with disabilities, you may be able to purchase a key if you have a health issue that requires you to use a toilet more frequently.

There is a non refundable charge of £2.50 for this service. This can be paid at any customer service centre by cash, credit/debit card or cheque.
