About the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower

The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower is a discreet tool to signal to others that the wearer has a hidden disability and may need some help, extra time, patience and understanding.

It helps those with disabilities that are not immediately obvious, such as:

  • autism
  • dyslexia
  • chronic pain
  • dementia
  • anxiety
  • visual impairments
  • hearing impairments 

You can support someone with a hidden disability by:

  • asking if you can help
  • having patience
  • being kind
  • not judging
  • listening closely
  • showing respect

Get a free sunflower lanyard

Our aim is to help make the invisible, visible. We encourage you to wear the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower to show people that you need additional support, help or a little more time.  

You can get yourself a free sunflower lanyard from: 

  • St Helier Parish Hall
  • Customer Local Services at La Motte Street

  • Jersey Library at Communicare, St Brelade
