Online training for the Isle of Man

Revealing the Sunflower

The first Sunflower-friendly Island

Discover the role the Sunflower plays in making the invisible, visible. In partnership with Compassionate Isle of Man, we are hosting a series of free online Sunflower training events to all businesses and organisations, based on the Isle of Man, to create the first Sunflower friendly island.

By attending one of the three online Sunflower training webinars, you have the opportunity to gain the knowledge required to understand what a hidden disability is, recognise the purpose and role that the Sunflower plays in revealing those who choose to make their hidden disability visible and to feel confident in approaching and offering a Sunflower wearer the support, patience and understanding that they may require. The online event will last for 30 minutes and will include a brief introduction followed by three training videos and ending with a Q&A session.

Once your business has taken part in the training, you will have the option to order an official Isle of Man Sunflower sticker to display on your premises and your business will be added to our Sunflower locator map, so that our wearers can find you. You can also choose to purchase Sunflower products to distribute them for free to any colleague or customer with a hidden disability.

Together, let's raise awareness about the Sunflower

Raising awareness of the Sunflower and hidden disabilities means that more people will be aware that some of us live with a hidden disability and can face challenges in our daily lives. Let's make sure everyone knows that the Sunflower is there to indicate that someone who has chosen to wear it may need some additional support, understanding or a little more time and to always be shown kindness.
