My Five in Partnership with St Enoch Centre
Our guidance document aimed at helping retail and hospitality businesses become more welcoming and accessible to autistic individuals and their families, launched in early 2019.
Following a public consultation with autistic individuals and their families across Scotland, the document highlights the five most common challenges that some autistic individuals can face when visiting retail outlets and businesses. The free document details the top five suggestions, of some simple adjustments that retailers and businesses can make, to create a more welcoming and accessible environment.
We launched our ‘My Five’ guidance document in partnership with Glasgow’s St Enoch Centre, who have supported us with a number of autism–friendly initiatives throughout our year-long partnership, including the installation of a quiet room and the hosting of quiet hours.
As well as our the guidance document, we have also created an poster that highlights what the public consultation found. In the future, we hope to roll this campaign out further to include other sectors such as sporting venues and workplace environments. Find out about our My Five for Supermarkets during the COVID-19 pandemic here.
