We are thrilled to announce that Chiltern Railways has become the latest rail travel provider to join our Sunflower network.
Steve Scutt, Accessibility & Integrated Transport Manager said: "At Chiltern Railways, we recognise the barriers that people face with a non-visible disability and that’s why we have provided enhanced Disability Awareness Training to our Station Staff and Train Managers. We want our customers to be confident when travelling with us and we are proud to support the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower.
There is a team of colleagues at our staffed stations who will provide assistance to customers when travelling, and this doesn’t just mean for people with reduced mobility, they will recognise the Sunflower, understanding that the person may need additional support or understanding. Our team will assist anyone who needs support or guidance when travelling with us."
Is your organisation a member of the Sunflower network?
Is your place of work Sunflower friendly? If not, why not suggest they look into becoming members of the Sunflower? We provide training and assistance to help businesses recognise the Sunflower to support individuals with non-visible disabilities and become confident in providing them with additional help or assistance.
Join an impressive network of organisations so our Sunflower wearers can find you as they plan their days out:
- add your location to the Sunflower location map
- provide details useful for Sunflower-friendly visits
- demonstrate how accessible you are
- tell your story through articles
- and even reveal your Sunflower-friendly events
