Copyright & trademarks

The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Scheme Limited owns various trademarks covering the Sunflower logo design, lanyard design and associated marketing and designs. Organisations that have adopted the scheme, including all major airports, rail companies, NHS, supermarkets etc. are required to buy the official products from The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Scheme Limited to become part of the Scheme. The official Sunflower design is now widely recognised and are subject to copyright and trademark protection.

Unfortunately, there are some organisations who are clearly trying to copy the design and sell unofficial (and inaccurate) copies of our Lanyards. This is misleading to the organisations, the general public and users of the lanyards and potentially exposes wearers to difficulties within organisations where the supporting staff may not have the appropriate knowledge or training to cater for the needs of people with Hidden Disabilities.

The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Scheme Limited will consider applications from organisations that want to use the official logo on workwear or within advertising and will do so under a appropriate licence agreement. Please contact us for further information if you wish to use the design.

The scheme, logo, design combined with the term ‘Hidden Disabilities’ are protected under a UK Trademark.  Please see section 4 for further details.
