Hidden Disabilities – Sunflower Lanyard Scheme

At Portsmouth International Port we realise how challenging travelling can be for those whose disabilities may not be immediately apparent. We are always working on ways we can improve the boarding experience for passengers that this affects.

Portsmouth International Port have joined the Sunflower Lanyard scheme. Wearing the Sunflower Lanyard discreetly indicates to our staff that you have a hidden disability and would like additional support. Our staff are being specially trained to recognise these identifiers and ask you what additional help will make your journey through the terminal and security better.

You can can order one from the Hidden Disabilities website here.
