Project update: Visual Stories at Cornish National Trust places

Date Posted: 16 July 2018

For many people, going for a day out at a tourist attraction is a thought that fills people with excitement. But for autistic people, the idea of going somewhere new can fill them with a sense of dread and nervousness.

We've now created Visual Stories for National Trust sites Botallack, Levant Mine and Godolphin in Cornwall have created ‘Visual Stories’. These guides help give autistic people advance information so they can prepare for changes before their visit.

 

Kate Evans, Visitor Experience Officer at Godolphin said: “We’re delighted to now have this handy document available on our website for visitors to use. We want our visitors to have a fantastic, stress free day when they visit and this great tool, combined with our Disability Awareness training will help us to give them a great day out.”

You can take a look at the Visual Stories on our location pages, or on the sites websites in the accessibility sections.
