The Autism Hour is running between 10am-11am.
The Centre already run Sensory Tuesdays, when all music is turned off, hand driers replaced with paper towels and stores are requested to either turn their in-store music off or have it at a very low level in order to help sufferers.
Linda Robson has personal reasons for her involvement in raising awareness as her great Nephew has autism.
Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how people perceive the world and interact with others.
Spencer Hawken, Manager of Mercury Mall said: “We like to think of Mercury Mall as being at the heart of the community.
“[We] hope our Sensory Tuesdays and our support of the needs of people who suffer from Autism by hosting this Autism Hour goes someway to satisfying their needs.”
Staff at Mercury Mall have also undertaken the Dementia Friends national course provided by Havering Council and Autism Awareness, the National Autistic Society.Tags: Romford, Mercury Mall, Autism
