Wests Tigers participate in Hidden Disabilities Sunflower initiative
The hidden disability sunflower helps by discreetly indicating that the wearer has a disability, and may need additional help, support and understanding. Wests Tigers are now participating in the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower initiative, supporting people with disabilities that may not be so obvious to the casual observer. Many people with a disability use or carry something – whether that’s a wheelchair, guide dog, hearing aid or white cane – that visibly indicates what the disability might be. But other disabilities, such as autism, dementia, mental health issues or learning difficulties, are not so obvious. Under the Hidden Disability Sunflower initiative, people with such disabilities can choose to wear a lanyard bearing a sunflower logo as a subtle way of letting others know that they may require additional support, assistance or a bit more time.
