Not all disabilities are visible -some are not immediately obvious. Living with a hidden disability can make daily life more challenging for many people and it can be difficult for others to recognize, acknowledge or understand the challenges you face.

If you would like a sunflower lanyard please get in touch. We do charge £2 for a lanyard and will need to be on our data base as a client to purchase from us.

The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower makes you visible. if you would like sunflower lanyard please get in touch
