Halton Borough Council’s Day Services Shopmobility store at Shopping City in Runcorn has won a ‘Kitemark Award’ from Halton Borough Council’s Speak Out Group.

A secret shopper came along from the group, which supports people with learning difficulties and assessed the centre as being disability friendly.

The Shopmobility service is run by adults with disabilities for disabled customers.

Trained young Kite Markers have checked out 27 venues and facilities this year.

22 were given the Bright Sparks Quality Kite Mark Award to say they are good places for young people with disabilities to visit or use.

Bright Sparks supports young people to be involved in decision making in Halton. It helps young people with disabilities to have a say in the services provided for them.

Halton Borough Council’s executive board member for Health and Wellbeing, Cllr Marie Wright, said: “These young people do a great job, peer reviewing places they use themselves, to bring them up to scratch.”
