We’re proud to be supporting Purple Tuesday, the UK’s first accessible shopping day, this November. At St Stephen's, we offer our disabled customers a range of facilities all year round so we’re thrilled to be involved with this initiative.
The aim of Purple Tuesday is to increase knowledge and awareness of the needs of disabled customers by supporting long-term changes to businesses and organisations.
Earlier this month we were joined by local Autism charity AIM HIGHER who spoke about their services and activities.
A few other community partners also joined in including: KIDS, Autism Plus, Jarrod Foundation, ADHD Adult Support, Child Dynamix, State of the Arts performing Arts school, ERYCPF – East Riding Carers forum, Special Stars, Homes Start, Pick me up, The local offer Hull, East Riding Hull Mumbler, Make it Shine and Unique Friends.
We wore ‘purple’ smiley pin badges and turned down the music in several of our shops too.We support all our customers with a range of facilities available all year round.
St Stephen's are proud to take part in the Safe Places scheme. This helps to keep vulnerable people safe while they're out and about in Hull.
- Free use of a wheelchair for the duration of your visit to the shopping centre.
- St Stephen's also offers two 'Changing Places' toilets, which have specialist facilities for severely disabled people and extra room for up to two carers. One is positioned on the toilet corridor, accessible from the main mall, and the other is on the lower ground floor near Tesco's car park.
If you need help while shopping at St Stephen's, please ask any member of staff who will be happy to help.
