Supporting hidden disabilities 16/09/2020
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.
We are working with the hidden disabilities scheme and have purchased a number of lanyards, pin badges, credit card sized cards and other accessories. If you or someone you know is interested, please contact us with your name the bus service you use and your address. We will in turn post out your requested accessory.
Wearing the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower discreetly indicates to people around you including staff, colleagues and health professionals that you may need additional support, help or a little more time. You can find out more about the scheme here.
