A global support network for travelers with hidden disabilities

The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower scheme helps people to discreetly identify themselves as a person who may need additional support in shops, at work, on transport, or in public spaces.

Originally started at Gatwick Airport, businesses all around the world have joined the global Sunflower network to support people when they wear the Sunflower badge or logo - anywhere they choose to be discreetly seen.

Globally 1 in 7 of us live with a disability. That is approximately 1.3 billion people. While some of us experience a disability that is visible, many have a non-visible condition that can be temporary, situational, or permanent.

I met the Australian Hidden Disabilities Sunflower representative at AITCAP (Accessible & Inclusive Tourism) conference last month, and learned about the project. It does seem to have a global adoption — I asked about it at the Coolangatta (Gold Coast, Australia) airport and the staff were trained to look out for the sunflower logo to support customers. A great concept!
