We're now Sunflower friendly
We are now proud participants in the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Scheme which helps to support and raise awareness of those living with a hidden disability. In Australia and New Zealand, 1 in 5 people are said to have a disability and 85% of these are hidden.
Established in 2016, The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Scheme is about helping people with disabilities that are not immediately obvious such as autism, chronic pain, dementia, anxiety, visual or hearing impairment, attain the understanding, patience and assistance needed when going about their daily lives.
Under the Hidden Disability Sunflower scheme, our customers with such disabilities can choose to wear a lanyard bearing a sunflower logo as a subtle way of letting our centre teams and retailers know that they may require additional support, assistance, or a bit more time when visiting our centres.
The Sunflower lanyards are now available in our centres across Australia and New Zealand.
Visit the friendly concierge team on your next visit or navigate your way to Plan > Centre Services > Accessibility on the website, to find out where you can pick up a free, hidden disability Sunflower lanyard in centre.
In addition to making the Sunflower lanyards available to customers and colleagues with a hidden disability, we’re training our team and retailers to identify the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower so we can better support our customers who may require additional help.
