Store supports Autism Hour
Pets at Home Livingston has once again teamed up with leading charity, the National Autistic Society, to hold an Autism Hour on Saturday (October 13).
The National Autistic Society’s Autism Hour was launched last year as the first mass-participation event to encourage shops to be more inclusive, by providing autistic people with a break from the usual information overload often found in stores.
Livingston is one of 440 plus Pets at Home stores that will be holding their Autism Hour for the first hour of the day, taking steps to make the store more autism friendly - from dimming the lights, turning down music and till bells and sharing information about the condition with employees.
Gareth Grindlay, store manager at Pets at Home Livingston, said: “We are proud to be supporting this fantastic initiative once again. We know it makes such a difference to the lives of some of our customers and their families who want to shop for their pets.”
