Sensory Packs Now Available
Sensory packs for autistic children, which include a drawstring bag, ear defenders, fidget spinners, a sensory ball, an awareness card and lanyard, as well as further match-day information, will be available at Home Park during the 2021/22 Sky Bet League One campaign.
Provided by the club thanks to funding from 50/50 Lottery, the sensory packs are designed to improve the match-day experience and are part of the club’s commitment to be more autism-friendly.
The packs have been designed for supporters - particularly children - with autism, who attend matches, to make the match-day experience more accessible, comfortable and enjoyable.
The sensory packs are completely free of charge and will be available throughout the 2021/22 season. Supporters interested in receiving a pack can apply for one by clicking here.
Supporter Relations Manager and Inclusion Lead, Siobhan Robbie-James, said: “The club would like to thank 50/50 Lottery for donating the funds to create these 100 packs, it helps us continue to work towards making Home Park a fully inclusive space with facilities that meet the needs of the whole community.”
Once supporters have received their pack, they are encouraged to continue to bring it back with them to all future games they attend. There are a limited number of packs available, which will be issued on a first come, first served basis.
If you have a pack from a previous season, you are encouraged to continue using this, if possible. If you would like an up-to-date map and information, we can provide these to you separately on a match day at the Information Point located on the edge of the car park opposite the Life Centre bus stop.
