Visibility for hidden disabilities

Updated: Mar 25

Whether you're planning a holiday, or just struggling day to day to get the support and acknowledgement you need to make your caring role easier, why not try a sunflower?

A Sunflower lanyard can be a helpful way to alert others that you – or the person you support – have a hidden disability and may need some extra support.   

Did you know:

  • All GP surgeries in the London Borough of Sutton have now been trained in supporting people wearing a Sunflower Lanyard

  • The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower design is also available as a pin badge or wristband

  • Lanyards are available for carers, including a personalised (photo) card

  • Cards are available in different languages  - International Cards - Shop

A Parent Carer who shared her experiences at our last Support group, said:

I was dreading our holiday as my son has autism and queueing in the airport was a nightmare. But last time we tried using a sunflower lanyard my son wouldn’t wear it, so I wore it for him. It meant staff offered some help without us having to explain anything. We got through the gates much faster and everyone was happier! I’ll definitely wear it for him when we travel in the future.”


Browse the Hidden Disabilities store for a range of sunflower lanyards and cards, including personalised (photo) cards and a useful card to show that you are a Carer.
