We are delighted that Pembrokeshire County Council has joined the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower.

Prior to launching the Sunflower, all council staff have undertaken the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower training and are ready to support their residents with non-visible disabilities. People with invisible disabilities can pick up a Sunflower lanyard at any of its 14 libraries or six leisure centres which are key hubs in communities, demonstrating their commitment to being accessible for all.

Jessica Hatchett, Pembrokeshire County Council’s Access Officer, said:

“Not all disabilities are immediately obvious and I’m really proud to have brought the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower to Pembrokeshire County Council. The lanyards are available free of charge to anyone who feels they need one – and while they are bright and eye-catching, I want to ensure they are picked up by people who will wear them for a genuine reason. Staff also have the opportunity to raise their awareness of hidden disabilities by undertaking training on the Council’s intranet.”
