Two Rivers supporting Autism Hour

Two Rivers supporting Autism Hour

Two Rivers and Staines-upon-Thames are working with The National Autism Society, to make simple steps to an autism-friendly world.  

Selected stores and businesses on Monday 2nd October will be participating in Autism Hour, where music and noise will be turned down, lights dimmed and sharing information with employees about autism.  

This is just one way we are looking to support visitors and shoppers in Staines who have disabilities and learning difficulties. Over the next few months we are hoping that more retailers will get involved to support an autism-friendly world.  

On the last Sunday of the month, Vue host a sensory friendly screening designed to be an inclusive and welcoming environment for people with sensory sensitivities and their loved ones.  

If you have any suggestions or ideas for us to be as autism-friendly as possible, please get in touch.
