Following on from the hugely successful launch in 2017, shops and businesses at intu Braehead will once again support the National Autistic Society’s Autism Hour week.
We are partnering with the National Autistic Society (NAS) on Tuesday 9th October at 10am to support the Autism Hour campaign. During your visit, you'll notice some of the changes we've made to benefit our autistic customers.
All participating retailers, restaurants and leisure facilities will commit to a minimum of:
• Reducing noise of in store music and tannoy announcements: Overwhelming noise is a common barrier to austistic people accessing shops. Where possible, in-store announcements and other controllable noise will be reduced.
• Dimming lights: Wherever possible, while maintaining safe premises, lights should be dimmed or switched off.
• Sharing information: Information will provided to our staff to make your experience at intu Braehead a positive one. We will receive information about autism in advance with employees so they know what to expect from customers’ behaviour and how they might be able to help.
