Hamilton Airport supports the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower

Hamilton Airport has adopted the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower to help support and raise awareness of those living with a hidden disability. 

Many people with a disability use or carry something – whether that’s a wheelchair, guide dog, hearing aid or white cane – that visibly indicates what the disability might be.  But other disabilities such as autism, dementia, mental health issues or learning difficulties, are not so obvious.  Under the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower, people with such disabilities can choose to wear a lanyard, pin or bracelet bearing a sunflower logo as a subtle way of letting others know that they may require additional support, assistance or a bit more time. 

From today, the Sunflower lanyards are being introduced in our airport.  In addition to making the Sunflower lanyards available to customers and colleagues with a hidden disability, we’ve trained our staff to identify the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower, gain a deeper understanding of hidden disabilities and learn how to approach and support customers with a hidden disability.
