Following on from the hugely successful launch in 2017, shops and businesses at intu Braehead will once again supporting Autism Hour throughout 2019.
This hour will be hosted on the first Tuesday of every month, from 10-11am.
Upcoming Quiet Hours:
5th March, 2nd April, 7th May, 4th June, 2nd July, 6th August, 3rd September, 1st October, 5th November, 3rd December
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.
