Our campaign to help retail and hospitality businesses become more accessible to autistic people
My Five is our campaign aiming to help retail and hospitality businesses become more welcoming and accessible to autistic individuals and their families.
Following public consultations with autistic individuals and their families across Scotland, our guidance document highlights the five most common challenges that some autistic individuals can face when visiting retail outlets, supermarkets and other 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.
As well as our guidance document, we have also created downloadable posters that highlight what our public consultations found. Find out more below:
We launched our ‘My Five’ guidance document in partnership with Glasgow’s St Enoch Centre. In the future, we hope to roll this campaign out further to include other sectors such as sporting venues and workplace environments.

We can also offer a range of training courses to help your business support autistic employees and customers. We also offer a bespoke consultancy service that provides advice and guidance on how to develop your environment and the best practices to be more supportive to autistic people.
