Citizens Advice Mid Mercia, through our Autism Information and Advice service, has been gifted funding from the Derbyshire Autism Partnership Board to purchase 500 Hidden Disabilities Sunflower lanyards – a lifeline for those living with Hidden Disabilities who want to discreetly let people know that they may need support when out in the community. We have contacted our many wonderful partners across Derbyshire and the following have kindly come forward as locations you can collect a lanyard from. Simply take a look at the list below to see where the nearest location is to you and contact the local organisation to request a lanyard – many will post them out to you too!
