Lanyard Scheme

Have you heard about the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Lanyard Scheme?

This is an initiative designed to act as a discreet sign that somebody has a hidden disability and requires additional assistance while out in public. Pick one up in participating stores, such as M&S or call in and collect one from Sight Support Worthing.

The lanyards are free and you don’t need to provide proof of a disability.
