So as some of you may know my Daughter (12) has Autism and last weeks I came across a post on Facebook about these sunflower lanyards that are for people with hidden disabilities I thought that’s a great idea i will get my daughter one to wear. I was in two minds at 1st because it said they are for use in airports (We dont travel abroad), but i carried on reading and it said some supermarkets are rolling this idea out in ther shops too starting with sainsburys. Wearing one of these lanyards indicates you need additional support or a little bit more time. Also wearing a lanyard or one of the other sunflower items is a message to staff that if they see anyone wearing one of these to just ask “would you like help with anything”. I wont say too much more because I want you to have the exact correct information which can be found here in this link. https://www.hiddendisabilitiesstore.com/customer/account/login/ My Daughter wore her lanyard for the 1st time today even though she was with me and her Dad so if she needed help we was there but because it as her name, emergency contact info and disability on there I thought if she was to ever get lost then someone will have the info they need. My daughter wont talk to people she dont know so there is no way she would speak her name and my number if she was asked. I’ll be so happy when its rolled out in all the other supermarkets and not just supermarket but other shops and companys.
Here is the link again https://www.hiddendisabilitiesstore.com/customer/account/login/ I bought 2 lanyards and a pin and it cost just under £5. You can buy the lanyard and the info card separate or you can buy it as one.
