A Norwich-based trampoline park has trained its staff in autism awareness in response to National Autism Week.

All 28 staff members at High Altitude, which is based in Whiffler Road, have learned about the difficulties and challenges faced by people with autism.

Fran Habbitts, managing director, said: 'As a company we aim to be inclusive, and expect all our staff to offer the best experience for everyone. Over the past two years we have seen our complex needs customer base consistently grow, due to our active promotion across East Anglia'.

Tim Slaughter, one staff member, said the training was valuable.

He said: 'I now feel much more confident in my ability to support autistic people, as I have a much better awareness of how to create a pleasurable, inviting and relaxing atmosphere. And if something doesn't go according to plan, I can quickly find a resolution'.
