Autism Friendly Guides

Lakeside believes that every customer should have the opportunity to have an enjoyable experience at the centre whether this be shopping, socialising with friends, or watching the latest release at the cinema. However, for every 100 people in the UK one person has autism, which can make this experience a daunting and sometimes stressful occasion. In a bid to change this, Lakeside has worked with Treetops School and NAS Thurrock to ensure that the centre is welcoming and accessible for all to give them a memorable experience.

We have created a Visual Guide for customers with autism, as well as a Detailed Guide for their parents or carers, to help with every stage of you visit to the centre.
