Hidden disabilities - Sunflower Lanyard scheme for adults and children
Living with Hidden Disabilities can make daily life more demanding for many people, but it can be difficult for others to recognise, acknowledge or understand the challenges faced.
The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower lanyard allows everyone with Hidden Disabilities to choose to be subtly visible when they need to be. It is starting to be recognised globally and has been adopted in the UK by all of the major airports, many supermarkets, railway stations, leisure facilities, in the NHS and an increasing number of small and large businesses and organisations. Basically, it is used anywhere where people meet.
Not all disabilities are visible – some are not immediately obvious, such as autism, chronic pain, dementia, anxiety, visual or hearing impairment. Living with a hidden disability can make daily life more demanding for many people, but it can be difficult for others to recognise, acknowledge or understand the challenges you face.
The design is a bright yellow sunflower placed on a green background so that it is clearly visible from a distance.
