The Galleria is proud to be supporting this year’s National Autistic Society’s Autism Hour. From Saturday 5th October to Saturday 12th October between 10am and 11am the centre will be quieter with music turned down and a reduction in other noise such as tannoy announcements which can be a common barrier to autistic people accessing shops.
Following the success of last year's Autism hour at The Galleria, we introduced a weekly "quiet hour" to make shopping more accessible and a less stressful experience for people with autism. The quiet hour operates every Sunday from 11am to 12pm.
It is important to us that our shoppers and their families feel comfortable when they visit The Galleria so we have recently created a quiet area for anyone who needs to step away from the hustle and bustle of the shopping environment.
This campaign is about raising awareness, and if you’d like to find out more, we’d recommend you visit the National Autistic Society Website.
