What are Changing Places Toilets?
Standard disabled toilets do not meet the needs of all people with a disability – or their carers.
People with profound and multiple learning disabilities, as well as other serious impairments such as spinal injuries, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis or an acquired brain injury, often need extra facilities to allow them to use the toilets comfortably.
Changing Places toilets are different to standard disabled toilets with extra features and more space to meet these needs.
Broad Stree Mall facility can be found on the first floor close to other toilet facilities and is operated by an automated door system by using a remote key fob. The facility is fitted with specialist equipment including an overhead hoist.
To access this facility ask one of the cleaners, who are usually on hand to give you access or push the buzzer for attention.
