What is the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Scheme?

Living with a Hidden Disability can make daily life more demanding for many people, but it can be difficult for others to recognise, acknowledge or understand the challenges faced. Wearing the Sunflower discreetly indicates to staff, colleagues and health professionals that the wearer (or support person with them) has a hidden disability and may need additional help or simply more time.


Where can I find a Hidden Disabilities Sunflower product?

Bayley House is the official partner and distributor of products for Australia and New Zealand

We feel that it is important that everyone who has a hidden disability and who would benefit from wearing a lanyard is able to access one. Sunflower Lanyards are available free of charge to customers from businesses and organisations who are members of Hidden Disabilities Sunflower. As some people may be unable to travel to collect a free Hidden Disabilities Sunflower lanyard or would prefer to have them delivered, you can order directly from our online shop

Only the official Hidden Disabilities Sunflower design is universally and quickly recognised. Hidden Disabilities Sunflower products are strictly not for resale by individuals, businesses, or organisations – they are intended to be donated by businesses and organisations to their customers free of charge




Individuals can purchase the products online direct from Hidden Disabilities and choose to wear them to be identified as someone needing extra time without having to ask for it or to enable access to assistance if required.



Organisations can purchase sunflower products in bulk to distribute at no cost to their patrons, customers and staff who choose to wear one. Organisations who purchase in bulk will be able to train their staff through online training resources, giving them the tools to confidently approach someone wearing the products to enable them to have a positive and rewarding experience.
