Autism friendly goal for Aberdeen Football Club
ABERDEEN Football Club has a new goal: to become Scotland’s first autism friendly football club!
As part of an initiative designed to raise understanding of autism in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire, the club will take steps to achieve the Autism Friendly Award.
Administered by The National Autistic Society Scotland, the award recognises organisations that take steps to ensure autistic visitors can access and enjoy their venues.
Over the coming weeks, a group of autistic volunteers will visit the stadium to explain what they find challenging and suggest changes the club could make. All front-of-house staff at Pittodrie will also take part in an autism awareness raising session.
