We Support Purple Tuesday

Lincs Inspire commits to Purple Tuesday

Grimsby Leisure Centre is backing the national campaign Purple Tuesday by pledging to provide additional support for those members of the community with autism.  

A weekly autism-friendly morning is being launched in the same week that many businesses and groups pledge their support to Purple Tuesday, which on November 12 calls on all organisations to make lasting changes to improve the customer experience for disabled people.

Every Wednesday from 9am to 12 noon, starting on Wednesday, November 13, Grimsby Leisure Centre’s health and well-being site will be adapted with:

  • no background music or radio
  • no public announcements
  • the use of a quiet area away from activities for people with autism

Lincs Inspire welcomes members of the community with a disability into all of its venues at any time and provides a host of sessions, equipment and opportunities for all groups to enjoy leisure and cultural activities. As part of this campaign, Wednesday mornings at Grimsby Leisure Centre’s health and wellbeing site, will become a safe place for people with autism to enjoy multi-sports, use of the gyms and other leisure activities.
