BBC first broadcaster to receive Autism Access award

The BBC has become the first UK broadcaster to receive the National Autistic Society’s Autism Access Award.

The award was presented to staff at BBC North after it introduced a range of measures to make it easier for people with autism to visit and work at its base in Salford.

Improvements include creating two interactive films - one for children and one for adults - for the BBC Shows and Tours website, which tell visitors to BBC buildings at MediaCityUK what to expect before they arrive, enabling anyone with autism or their carers to plan a tour in advance.

In addition all tour guides, reception staff and security guards have received Autism Awareness Training and a work experience scheme for people with ‘neurodiverse’ conditions has been piloted.

The announcement comes in the week the BBC broadcasts two brand new series exploring the challenges faced by people with autism.
