Teesside Park has launched the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Scheme, to support more than 10 million people living in the UK that have a hidden disability.
The scheme is designed to help ensure Teesside Park is accessible to all visitors by raising awareness of the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower, which is used to discreetly indicate to people around the wearer that they may need additional support, help or a little more time. Our team have all been trained to recognise the meaning behind the sunflower.
We understand that for people with sensory, autism spectrum conditions or additional needs a visit to a busy shopping centre like ours can be a daunting experience. To make your visit as comfortable and enjoyable as possible we’ve introduced our Autism Hour 9am to 10am on Saturday mornings.
Other Ways We Can Help
Please note, due to the current restrictions, our accessible toilet facility is temporarily closed, we look forward to reopening this facility as soon as it is safe to do so.
