The Caravan and Motorhome Club is supporting an initiative to improve the lives of those with hidden disabilities across its network of UK campsites.

Developed in 2016, the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower scheme provides colourful, discreet and easily-recognisable lanyards, badges and car stickers to those with hidden disabilities — such as autism, Alzheimer's or hearing loss — so that others are aware that they may need more support. The Club will be introducing lanyards, pins and stickers for staff and visitors to its campsites, as well as displaying posters for members to learn more about the scheme.

Already backed by businesses such as M&S and Sainsbury's, the scheme is now gaining international recognition. 

Nick Lomas, director general of the Caravan and Motorhome Club, said: “All of us at the Caravan and Motorhome Club are delighted to be supporting this excellent scheme that enables us all to be a little more understanding of each other’s needs. We hope that Club members and staff alike will embrace the scheme whether they have a hidden disability or can offer support to someone who does.”

Paul White, CEO of Hidden Disabilities Sunflower, said: “We’re really excited that the Caravan and Motorhome Club is introducing the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower scheme into their UK community, for staff as well as members. This can only help people who have hidden disabilities get the most from their time in the great outdoors.”
