Two Changing Places facilities launched

Posted onPosted on 11th Jul

Two specialist toilet and changing facilities have opened in Mansfield’s town centre.

The Four Seasons Shopping Centre and Mansfield Museum now have Changing Places facilities that can cater for visitors with profound or multiple disabilities as well as visitors with stoma bags.

The spaces include a height-adjustable adult changing bench, a ceiling track hoist, a toilet with space for two assistants, a privacy screen, a backrest on the toilet seat, and a height-adjustable wash basin.

The Changing Place in Mansfield Museum is readily accessible during the museum’s opening hours with a radar key. To use the Four Seasons Shopping Centre facility, visitors will need to register for a swipe card at

Visitors can also ask the council’s town centre operatives, Four Seasons Shopping Centre staff, and Mansfield BID staff for assistance.

Mayor Andy Abrahams said: “We are delighted that the council has been able to play a key role in helping set up these new Changing Places toilets in the town centre. These toilets give anyone, regardless of their disability, greater freedom to go to the shops, enjoy community life, socialise, and travel – all the things that most of us take for granted every day.”

The facilities have been designed by the council’s design services team and formally approved by Muscular Dystrophy UK. The requirement to seek approval from the charity was a condition for unlocking government funding from the Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities
