Navan Retail Park is Autism & Sensory-Friendly

As one of the first in Ireland, we’re proud to announce that Navan Retail Park is Autism and Sensory-Friendly. Thank you all again for making this happen.

Throwback Thursday! Check out the video of our Autism & Sensory-Friendly Initiative on 27th April. This can't be done without your support! 💙 Autism is an invisible disability which affects an estimated 1 in 59 children/adults. Trips to shops can be stressful for autistic adults and children, and they can be overwhelmed by sensory experiences. As one of the first in Ireland, we're proud to announce that Navan Retail Park is now autism and sensory-friendly. Also, have you submitted your #LocalHero application? We're looking for the town's most deserving community person/group and help you with a €1,000 prize to support your valuable work in the community. Entries close today! 👉 #AutismFriendly #SensoryFriendly #Navan #DoWellByDoingGood

In an effort to provide a Sensory-Friendly shopping experience, and make visits to the Retail Park easier for autistic and other sensory affected people, all the stores will have shopping caps available on request. These caps block out the light and also helps the staff to identify those people who may need assistance.

Working closely with stores, we will provide advice and develop inclusive activities such as “quiet shopping hours” to facilitate visits and improve the customer experience.

We are very pleased about this amazing news and glad to help and support our community.

Let’s all #DoWellByDoingGood
