Marveloo makes debut

Tuesday, 1 October 2019

The Marveloo Changing Places facility will make its debut at the Kardinia Park Festival of Sport on Sunday 6 October 2019.

Marveloo is a portable, fully accessible changing places facility that can be transported to events and community sites throughout the Greater Geelong municipality.

It offers people with a disability, families and carers the opportunity to participate in a broad range of community events with the confidence and peace of mind that their needs are being catered for in a safe, comfortable and dignified manner.

The self-contained structure provides a track hoist and adjustable adult change table for use by people with significant disabilities and their carers.

It is available for hire and can be installed on site at most major festivals and events throughout Greater Geelong and the Bellarine, working towards making Geelong an accessible, inclusive, clever and creative city.

Geelong’s first Changing Places facility was installed in Geelong at Leisurelink in 2009. We now has seven across the municipality with plans for additional facilities.

If you are interested in hiring the Marveloo please call 03 5272 5272.

Councillor Bruce Harwood - Mayor

The Marveloo Changing Places facility ensures people with a disability will be able to enjoy the different events Geelong has to offer, by providing peace of mind that their needs will be catered for.

I encourage the organisers of upcoming events and festivals in our region to hire the clever and creative technology, to make their events more accessible and inclusive.

Councillor Anthony Aitken - Chair, Disability, Access, Inclusion and Volunteering portfolio

Changing Places facilities make a big difference in the lives of Geelong residents who have a disability, allowing them to access services and participate in events.

The City is continually looking for new and different ways to improve accessibility in our municipality, so people with a disability are given full opportunity to get involved.

Robyn Stevens - Director Community Life

I am thrilled to see the Marveloo Changing Places facility will be at the Kardinia Park Festival of Sport. This toilet will give people with disabilities and their carers the opportunity that others take for granted.

Marveloo will be a great addition to this event, as well as others in the future, making community events more accessible for all members of our community.

The Marveloo design means that carers will have peace of mind that facilities will be available to cater for the needs of their loved one in a safe, comfortable and dignified manner at this event.
