Congratulations to the Abbey Centre in Newtownabbey on achieving the Autism Impact Award!
Through recent training with Autism NI, the centre made some changes including new downloadable resources that consumers can use such as pre-visit guides, shopping lists and a centre layout map. The centre has also introduced a regular Sensory Friendly Shopping Hour every Monday 5pm – 6pm and Sensory Packs to loan which contain ICE (in case of emergency) wristbands available to hire from Customer Services. A huge well done to all the staff for making their centre more accessible to autism families.
