Queensgate is excited to announce that they are backing the Sunflower lanyard to provide more help to visitors with hidden disabilities.

People with invisible conditions can collect and wear a lanyard from the popular destination’s customer service desks to signal that they may need more support during their visit.

It will act as a discreet sign to staff that the wearer could require help or a little more time with things like finding their way around a centre or store and getting access to a quiet space or close-by toilet facilities, due to conditions such as autism, dementia, or diabetes.

Katie Chapman, Marketing and Commercialisation Manager has said of the Sunflower:

“We are thrilled to be championing this initiative, as we want to ensure Queensgate is accessible to all and continue to show Queensgate as a destination for everyone”.

Paul White, CEO, Hidden Disabilities Sunflower said:

“Queensgate Shopping Centre is a thriving retail, hospitality and leisure destination in the heart of Peterborough.  By joining the global Hidden Disabilities Sunflower network, they create an inclusive and accessible space for their customers and staff with non-visible disabilities. Staff at Queensgate have taken our training to recognise Sunflower wearers and offer the support and understanding they require.”
