WEALDEN District Council has provided town and parish councils with more sunflower lanyards to help those with hidden disabilities feel confident in their communities.

The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower project helps those who have disabilities that are not immediately obvious to others. This could include people with learning difficulties, those living with dementia or poor mental health, as well as mobility, speech, visual or hearing impairments.

Lanyards are provided free of charge at the following locations. Please check collection arrangements with each individual organisation:

Forest Row Community Centre

Crowborough Town Council offices

Uckfield Civic Centre

Polegate Town Council (please call 01323 488114 to arrange collection)

Sussex Community Development Association, Hailsham

Alternatively, you can call Wealden District Council Customer Services on 01323 443322 for further details. Please note that lanyards cannot be collected in person from the WDC office at this time.
