Hidden Disabililties Sunflower

This entry was posted in General January 18, 2021

At Ableworld we are delighted to announce that we have recently become a Member of the Hidden Disabilities Scheme. As a caring mobility retailer, we felt it was important to recognise the well-known Sunflower and work with this wonderful Charity to spread awareness across the UK.

Not all disabilities are visible – some are hidden and not immediately obvious, such as learning difficulties, mental health as well as mobility, speech, visual or hearing impairments. Living with a hidden disability can make daily life more demanding for many people, but it can be difficult for others to identify, acknowledge or understand the challenges you face. This is why it’s important we recognise the sunflower in order to help those choosing to wear it.

They affect each person in different ways and can be painful and exhausting. Without visible evidence of the hidden disability, it is frequently difficult for others to acknowledge the challenges faced and as a consequence, sympathy and understanding can often be ignored.

Wearing the Sunflower discreetly indicates to people that the wearer may need additional support, help or a little more time. For many, wearing the lanyard can help those feel more comfortable when leaving home every day.

At Ableworld we are now suppling Hidden Disability Lanyards and cards in selected Ableworld stores across the UK. Simply ask us in store for further details and our friendly team will be sure to help.

We are proud to be able to support the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Scheme, and recognise the important work that this charity does.

Take care and we hope to see you in store soon.
