Making the invisible, visible
When you choose to wear a Sunflower product, you are discretly indicating to people around you that you have a non-visible disability and you may need additional support, help or simply a little more time.
Be a part of the global Sunflower community
Living with an invisible disability can make daily life more demanding but, without visual cues, it can be difficult for others to understand the challenges you might face. The Sunflower helps to open conversations about disability, about the barriers faced and how to remove those barriers. We are creating a space that allows our Sunflower community to come together and connect - the individuals who wear the Sunflower, the individuals who support the Sunflower and the global network of businesses that are Sunflower members - it is a space to be heard and a space to listen through Sunflower Conversations, articles and our invisible disabilities index.
How can wearing the Sunflower benefit you?
You may find that people around you may ask what they can do to assist you, and you can use your Sunflower to tell people who are aware of the Sunflower about your individual access needs.
Do you qualify to wear the Sunflower lanyard?
There is no qualifying list of invisible disabilities. If you have a non-visible disability, you can choose to wear the Sunflower to indicate that you may need additional support, help or simply a little more time. The Sunflower is not a pass to be fast-tracked nor does it entitle you for any other benefit.
Where can you find a Sunflower lanyard?
We feel that it is important that everyone who has a non-visible disability and who would benefit from wearing a Sunflower lanyard is able to access one.
Sunflower lanyards are available free of charge to customers from businesses who are members of the Sunflower and have trained their colleagues to recognise the Sunflower and support those who choose to wear it. Sunflower products are strictly not for resale by individuals or businesses.
Our Sunflower map is where you, our Sunflower wearers can discover where you can shop, travel or be entertained with the Sunflower by your side.
