Information for supporters with ASD
We are committed to promoting and improving matchday facilities at the Swansea.com Stadium for supporters with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and we understand that for ASD supporters, matchdays can be a daunting experience with numerous sensory challenges.
We recognise that prior information can be extremely effective in alleviating these concerns and ensuring that supporters and their families are able to fully enjoy their matchday experience. We have therefore created a visual picture guide which can be viewed by clicking the link below while information for parents, guardians and carers can be viewed by clicking here.
In 2019, we introduced a sensory/ inclusion room at the stadium which can be booked in advance for supporters who may find the stadium environment challenging. This must be booked in advance by emailing email@example.com. For more information about the sensory/ inclusion room, please click on the image further down this page.
If you have, or care for someone who has ASD, you may find the information on this page useful. If you have any further questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT IS THE SENSORY ROOM?
In 2019, we launched our sensory room along with the Disabled Supporter Association. The sensory room allows supporters who may find the environment challenging to come and enjoy the match at their own pace. Supporters view the match from inside the sensory room while also being able to sit in the stand, safe in the knowledge that they are able to return to the sensory room, should they become overwhelmed.
Sensory rooms were traditionally spaces set for those with ASD or similar disabilities. Swansea City however recognises that other supporters and disabilities may benefit from such as a space, such a those with dementia and so Swansea City is open to receiving applications from an y supporter who feels they require use of this type of space.
Our journey to introducing a sensory room began in February 2017 in partnership with our Disabled Supporters Association (DSA). The Club then engaged with a number of organisations and held a consultation evening.
In April 2019, through investment from the Premier League, the BT Disability Fund, and The Shippey Campaign funding the Club secured to support the installation of a sensory room.
