Living with a stoma has its challenges, that is why we at SecuriCare are committed to making life as easy as possible for those on our home delivery service.

One of the ways we do this is by adopting the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower lanyard to help support and raise awareness of those living with a hidden disability.

Over the years, stoma pouches have advanced in quality and appearance, which has meant that for many, living with a stoma can be discreet. It is a personal choice who you wish to disclose your condition to, and to what extent, meaning that you can go about your daily tasks with those around you none-the-wiser. However, living with any invisible condition can be challenging. The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower is about supporting people with a hidden disability, and helping them attain the understanding, patience and assistance needed when going about their daily lives.

Wearing the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower discreetly indicates to people around the wearer including staff, colleagues, and health professionals that they need additional support, help or a little more time.

The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Scheme was established in 2016. Since then, it has been embraced worldwide by major airports and venues and in the UK, by many supermarkets, railway, and coach stations, leisure facilities, the NHS, a number of police, fire and ambulance services, and an increasing number of small and large businesses and organisations.

The Sunflower exists to help those with disabilities that are not immediately obvious such as autism, chronic pain, dementia, anxiety, visual or hearing impairment. This may also include those living with a stoma or incontinence needs. The aim is to help make the invisible, visible.
