The award-winning shopping mall was awarded grant funding for Changing Places toilet facilities by the Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities in association with Muscular Dystrophy UK and with support from Sheffield City Council.

The new services were officially launched by Mosborough councillor Gail Smith, who is also the founder of the Friends of Hi5s charity.

More than a quarter of a million people in the UK need Changing Places Toilets to enable them to get out and about and enjoy the day-to-day activities which the majority of people take for granted.

The Crystal Peaks Changing Places toilet includes an adjustable adult-sized changing bench, an electric hoist system, electric adjustable sink, a privacy screen and a non-slip floor.

The facility is located on the East Mall near New Look and is accessible using a RADAR key or by visiting the customer services desk in the Central Atrium.

“The comfort and safety of all our visitors is always our principal priority and this marks an important upgrade to our facilities.
