In designing High Rise, we were passionate that it should be a place where all families can come to enjoy quality time together, no matter what their ability or their needs. Prior to opening, we carried out research with families of children with additional needs, who told us that often they have to ‘separate out’ to enjoy activities with their children. High Rise is different, High Rise is for everyone.

  • Our sensory rooms are available to families and groups with additional needs (reopening Friday 6 January)
  • We have invested in a Changing Places accessible toilet facility
  • We employ an in-house sensory assistant to work with guests with additional needs
  • We offer specific autism tailored Clip 'n Climb and soft play sessions
  • Our staff have received additional training in recognising and working with individuals with additional needs
  • We have received the prestigious Autism Impact Award from Autism NI in recognition of how we support individuals with autism
  • Look out for special events or training for parents and carers of children with additional needs

Autism awareness

High Rise has been designed to be inclusive and accessible, and to support individuals and families with additional needs such as autism or sensory sensitivities. We have received the prestigious Autism Impact Award from Autism NI in recognition of the way we support individuals with autism in visiting High Rise

We are keen to accommodate any additional requirements, please call us on 028 9263 6195 in advance of your visit to discuss these.

Changing Places toilet

High Rise features an accessible Changing Places toilet for the benefit of our guests. Changing Places toilets are larger than standard disabled toilets, with extra features and more space. Our Changing Places toilet provides specialised equipment, extra space and a clean and safe environment. By providing space, privacy and appropriate equipment, High Rise is supporting families and carers to look after people with disabilities in dignified and hygienic conditions.

Familiarising yourself with High Rise

We know that visiting a new environment can be daunting, particularly for someone who has autism. If you are coming to Clip ‘n Climb, you will receive a safety briefing on the day from one our team. You can also watch the video below, before your visit, to familiarise yourself with what the instructors will be telling you during your briefing session.
