Raising Awareness of SEND

Meadows Shopping Centre - Accesible Shopping

The Meadows Shopping Centre will instigate a 'quiet hour' in the main area and shops from 3pm - 4pm on the first Tuesday of each month. This quiet hour is to support customers who may have sensory needs, such as Autism. Steps will be taken to reduce noise, such as turning down music and tannoy messages, and dimming the lights. 

First Bus - Support when travelling

For some people, travelling by bus can be a little daunting so First Bus have been working with many disability groups around the UK to design some cards that you can print out and show your driver as a way of discretely asking for a little extra help if you'd rather not ask them out loud.

 

Whatever the help you need, these little cards will either already have an appropriate message for you to use, or you can fill in one of the blank ones with your own request for help.
