Help with toilet needs

The National Key Scheme (NKS) offers people with a disability access to around 9,000 locked public toilets across the UK. You can buy a Radar NKS key for £4.50 (including postage and packaging) from Disability Rights UK. In Northern Ireland, these keys can be purchased at any local council office.

Visit disabilityrightsuk.org/shop/genuine-radar-key or call 0203 687 0790.

The Macmillan toilet card

Cancer treatment can affect the way the bowel or bladder works. Macmillan can send you a free toilet card and key ring, which explain why you may need to access a toilet urgently while out in public. We have a general version, and one for people who are experiencing late side effects after pelvic radiotherapy. Visit be.macmillan.org.uk and search for ‘toilet card’ to order these free resources.
