FND Action are delighted to have had the opportunity to join the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Scheme to aid in supporting those diagnosed with FND.
Wearing the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower lanyard discreetly indicates to people around the wearer they may need additional support, help or a little more time. It is widely known that people with FND struggle tremendously to get acknowledgement and assistance when out in public, so wearing the lanyard will help towards confidence in public places and reduce isolation.
The lanyard and card can be obtained free of charge by visiting our FND Toolkit page. The card does only provide basic information, so it is suggested that a plastic wallet is obtained to add further medical information if the basic card does not suffice. Or alternatively a note could be made on the card to state where additional information can be found, such as in a bag or purse.
Not every disability is visible
