Centre receives Autism Award 2020
We are pleased to announce that Chelmsley Wood Shopping Centre has been awarded the Autism Friendly Award for 2020!
We were first awarded the accreditation back in 2018 following a successful visit from The National Autistic Society. The award is in recognition of improvements that the centre has made to make shopping more accessible for people with autism spectrum conditions.
Following on from Sensory Sunday's that we introduced 3 years ago, Chelmsley Wood Shopping Centre has made an effort to be an inclusive environment by hosting autism friendly children's events, regular sensory hours during busy shopping periods and more recently we created The Chill Out Corner, which was created taking in to consideration the needs of our autistic customers should they need some space away from the noise and crowds of the shopping centre.
We are very pleased to have been awarded an Autism Friendly accreditation by the National Autistic Society and look forward to continuing our work together to offer a great customer experience to all.
