What is a Radar key?
Having a Radar key allows disabled people to open locked accessible toilets all over the UK. If you have mobility problems and plan to go on day trips or longer travels, getting one in advance is a very good idea.
Disabled toilets are commonplace and certain premises (including restaurants) are required to have them by law, but often they are kept locked to ensure they can only be used by people who need them. This can become a problem if a member of staff is not on hand with the key when you need it.
How to get a Radar key
The Radar National Key Scheme was designed to address this problem, and you can order a Radar key from the Disability Rights UK website.
