We’re so pleased to have launched the Sunflower Lanyard scheme in our buildings, to provide support to those who need it.
The scheme – which has largely been picked up in airports, railway services and shops – facilitates customers picking up and wearing the lanyards as a way of symbolising that they might benefit from some additional assistance from both staff members, and other customers.
Dan Bates, Chief Executive of Sheffield Theatres, said: ‘We’re so proud to be implementing the Sunflower Lanyard scheme to ensure everyone can have the best possible experience when visiting our theatres.
'These lanyards will open up conversations between our staff teams and customers who might require additional support, and will enable us to continue learning how to make our buildings, our shows and our approach more accessible for everyone.’
We support the Hidden Disability Sunflower Lanyard, and pledge to keep the conversation surrounding hidden conditions going. For more information on Sunflower Lanyards at Sheffield Theatres, please email [email protected] or call 0114 249 6000.
