Tips for…
Life outside home – Shopping

Ask your local supermarket if they have quiet times for shopping. (If not, ask them to consider this, or shop somewhere that does). Read more here.

Shop as much as possible online (but not when you’re hungry or tired!)

If you really like something, buy more than one in case you lose it!

Many supermarkets are starting to have a ‘quiet hour’ when they turn the music off and staff are especially aware to help shoppers. Check with your local supermarket. If they don’t have one, enquire if they might be willing to start one?

Go to shops you trust first – the ones that will follow the rules and make you feel safe. I went to M&S simply because I knew they helped at every point from beginning to end.

Try shopping at a quiet time. I asked my daughter if she was free to pick me up if I got in a pickle.
