The National Key Scheme (NKS), previously referred to as RADAR keys, offer disabled people independent access to locked public accessible toilets around the country. Toilets fitted with NKS locks can be found in shopping centres, pubs, cafés, department stores, bus and train stations and many other places.

This means that, if you have a disability or health condition and you live within the Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council area, you can purchase a NKS compatible key from us that can be used in any of our disabled public toilet facilities fitted with a compatible lock.

These keys also provide access to any disabled public toilet in the UK fitted with the appropriate lock.

If you have a disability or health condition that requires you to access a compatible toilet and require a NKS key please complete the form below. The cost of the key is £3.75 and it will be posted to the address details you provide.

Alternatively, NKS keys can be purchased in person from:-
