Autism Hour

Autism Hour

On the first Sunday of the month, Manor Walks will be holding an Autism Hour to help raise awareness and support to our Autistic Shoppers. During your visit, you’ll notice simple changes we’ve made, from dimming the lights to turning down music – to improve the shopping experience.

Autistic people often find social situations difficult and can struggle to filter out the sounds, smells, sights and information they experience, which can make busy public places, like shops, overwhelming.

We will  be joined by Autism Northumberland who will be on hand at our information desk with support and guidance to shoppers. For more information or to support this local charity, head to www.autismnorthumberland.co.uk/

Join us from 10am -11am and enjoy a break from the overload of too much information.
