Upcoming Quiet Hours
|4 February||3 March||7 April|
|5 May||9 June||7 July|
|4 August||1 September||6 October|
In support of The National Autistic Society’s Autism Hour, we host regular quiet hours on the first Tuesday of the month from 10-11am all year round.
Our shops take simple steps where possible to create a more autism-friendly experience, such as turning down music and dimming bright lights.
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.
Wherever possible, while maintaining safe premises, lights should be dimmed or switched off.
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.
