We are proud to have recently become part of the Hidden Disabilities scheme. This scheme is designed as a way for people to discreetly signal that they may need support, help, or just a little more time in public spaces. The Sunflower is now a globally recognised symbol for non-visible disabilities thanks to this scheme.
Hidden disabilities include autism, chronic pain, learning difficulties, mental health conditions, mobility issues, speech impairments, sight/hearing loss, respiratory conditions, diabetes, and sleep disorders. People living with these conditions often face barriers in their daily lives including a lack of understanding and negative attitudes.
By displaying Hidden Disabilities posters we can reassure our visitors that they will be welcomed in a supportive way. We are also now listed on their website as a Sunflower-friendly location in order to help people better plan their trips. All customer-facing staff at Blair Drummond receive disability awareness training.
