Hidden Disability Sunflower

Merlin Entertainments is partnering with Autism Spectrum Australia to roll out the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Lanyard Scheme at the Sydney Tower Eye and Merlin's Sydney Attractions. This program enables anyone with a hidden disability to choose whether or not they would like to be more visible, so that we can make suitable adjustments to make their visit more inclusive.

Customers can pick up a lanyard when they arrive, which indicates to our staff that they may need additional time, support or understanding. Our staff have been specially trained in understanding what a hidden disability is, how to respond appropriately to someone wearing the Sunflower lanyard and how to help modify the environment around them to be more accessible and inclusive.
