Quieter Hours for shopping
Disabilityrightsuk.org have the following information about special, quieter hours for more vulnerable people to go shopping in:
"Some branches of some of the major supermarkets, including Sainsbury’s, M&S, Asda, Morrison’s and Tesco, are offering a quieter hour for shopping for vulnerable groups (older people, people with long-term health conditions, and disabled people). While the intention is there, concerns have been raised in the media that the queues are long and proximity to people too close to be considered isolating. If you are able to use the internet, online grocery shopping affords more isolation."
If you think that being able to shop at quieter times would be a great help to you then give your supermarket a call. Contact details can be found on the relevant website below.
Remember that Enrych Connect can also assist you in learning how to do online shopping!
