QPR awarded for Autism access

Ahead of our Weeks of Action 2015, Level Playing Field was delighted to learn that QPR’s Loftus Road Stadium has been named as the first major sports stadium to be awarded The National Autistic Society (NAS) Autism Access Award. The award was presented before the clubs home fixture against Southampton on February 7th.

As part of the work completed to achieve the award, the club asked people with autism and their families who visit QPR on match days to complete a survey identifying how they think the club could be made more accessible. The club have also produced a downloadable easy-read guide which helps people with autism prepare for a visit and includes tips for those who may have sensory issues around large crowds. QPR also runs an after-school football club for children with autism and provides sessions for adults with autism who attend a day centre.

The Level Playing Field Weeks of Action will take place from 18th April until the 3rd May. It is an annual fortnight for clubs to showcase the positive work they do in partnership with their disabled supporters and promote access and inclusion.
