Whether your invisible disability is sight loss, not being able to stand for long periods of time or needing urgent access to toilet facilities, you can discreetly highlight the type of support you need on your personalised Sunflower card. You have space to add up to five icons on the back of the card but you only need to add the icons which are useful to you - you can add five or just one!
Our free Sunflower icons poster provides an overview of all the icons — download it here.
