Sensory Supermarket by Sensory Street

Sensory Street is a research project from the Universities of Oxford and Reading, funded by the Wellcome Trust. Since 2021, we have been working with autistic people to learn more about their everyday sensory experiences and what environments they find either disabling or enabling, and why.

On Friday 19 and Saturday 20 August we are holding our Sensory Supermarket event at the PEARL building in Dagenham. This is an opportunity for you to discuss and learn from our research findings which are entirely informed by the autistic people’s sensory experiences and their perspectives.

At the Sensory Supermarket you can show your commitment to inclusivity and:

  • Take part in our immersive supermarket experience (designed in partnership with Sensory Spectacle) to see for yourself how supermarkets can be disabling sensory environments
  • Discover the small adaptations you could make to your business to create a more inclusive, accessible environment for people with autism and other disabilities
  • Find out how you can support people with autism in your business environment
  • Learn more about our research with the autistic community through videos, displays and more.

You can book free tickets for an allocated 45-minute time slot at sensorysupermarket.eventbrite.com. For more information on our research, please visit sensorystreet.uk.
