The hidden disabilities lanyard is also called the sunflower lanyard due to its appearance. It is a strip of green with a pattern of yellow sunflowers. Once you get one it is yours to keep an use for future travels, shopping trips and outings where the scheme is recognised. The scheme has been backed by some of the UKs major retailers such as Argos, Sainsburys and Marks and Spencers. The aim of the scheme is to make it easier for people with hidden disabilities such as Austim, dementia to go shopping, use an airport.
