After the great success of a pilot program earlier this year, Walmart US now offers sensory-friendly shopping hours in all stores every morning. This step can support people with sensory sensitivities, as shopping in bright and noisy supermarkets can be very challenging.

Youth Aspire Connect is a youth-led charity from Hull, UK. “Just Ignore It” is an animation they created based on their real-life experiences of racism and racial prejudice – worth watching!
