Who: Changing Places

When: June 2016

Where: Melbourne

Changing Places advocates for toilets with full sized change tables and hoists in public spaces around Australia to meet the needs of people with severe and profound disabilities.

Back for his second hackathon, Changing Place’s founder, Eddie, hoped to redevelop his organisation’s website to collect feedback from users about current toilets and to ask them where future facilities should be placed. Committed to finishing what had already been started at the previous hack, Eddie’s team successfully built two feedback tools: one on their website and another using Facebook and Twitter.

With this new information, Changing Places can better advocate for fully accessible toilets around Australia.

After the hackathon we were stoked to welcome Eddie onto the RHoK Melbourne Steering Committee.
