Not all disabilities are visible.
Some are not immediately obvious.
Think chronic pain, learning difficulties or sleep disorders when these significantly impact day-to-day life.
Although we may not be able to see these invisible impairments and conditions, they’re still there.
People living with these often face barriers in their daily lives including a lack of understanding and negative attitudes.
The Sunflower is a globally recognized symbol for non-visible disabilities.
So some choose to wear the Sunflower lanyard to discreetly identify that they may need support, help, or just a little more time in shops, transport, or public spaces.
How many of these icons are you familiar with?
