What is the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Scheme?

The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower is a globally recognised symbol for non-visible disabilities, also known as hidden disabilities or invisible disabilities.

People living with these often face barriers in their daily lives including a lack of understanding and negative attitudes. So some choose to wear the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower to discreetly identify that they may need support, help, or just a little more time in shops, transport, or public spaces.  For more information visit

There are Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Lanyards available for free in the Library and with the College Porters.
