Highcross has joined the National Autistic Society’s Autism Hour campaign. This year, the annual campaign begins on 5 October, and encourages high street shops and businesses to hold Autism Hours throughout the week.
Highcross will take simple steps to create a more autism-friendly experience by arranging Disability Awareness Training for staff members through Mencap, host an educational pop-up stall by Rethink Mental Illness on 10th October and continue ‘Quiet Hour’ sessions every morning to limit noise levels at the centre.
Quiet hour sessions will be held at the following dates and times:
Saturday 5th October – 09:00-10:00
Sunday 6th October – 11:00-12:00
Monday 7th October – 09:30-10:30
Tuesday 8th October – 09:30-10:30
Wednesday 9th October – 09:30-10:30
