Changing Places Facility
Changing Places are designed to be completely accessible and provide sufficient space and equipment for people who are not able to use the toilet independently. The room is designed to accommodate a user and up to two carers, plus mobility equipment. The room has facilities such as a specialist hoist, a rise and fall sink and an adult changing bench, offering discreet toilet facilities to members of the public that may otherwise be deterred from visiting. This is one of only two of these facilities in a retail environment in Halton.
The facility is located between the Market Café, the Accessible Toilet and Crème de le Crème Hairdressers, and is clearly signposted.
Nursing Room and Quiet Space
Widnes Market now have a great new space which offers parents the option to breastfeed or express in a private and comfortable area while visiting the market.
The room also acts as a Quiet Space for members of the public who live with autism or for those with anxiety issues.
The room is private and offers a relaxing setting with ambient décor and subdued lighting. ChAPS (Cheshire Autism Practical Support) provided advice on how to ensure the room was autism friendly.
The area is located between Lou’s Barber Shop and AK Connectionz and opposite the corridor leading to the public toilets.
Multi Faith Prayer Room
The multi-faith prayer room has been relocated to a more discreet position, with the added benefit of the room now having a walled front and entrance door to preserve the privacy of the user.
The room is clearly signposted and will be available to all denominations on all trading days as a relaxing space for private prayers and reflection.
The room is located between Noah’s Ark Pet Shop and The Vape Stall, and opposite ICare Opticians
