Sunflower Lanyard

Sunflower Lanyards Launch-7th October 2019 at Sainsbury’s

Sainsbury’s have announced that they will be launching Sunflower Lanyards in all their stores including convenience stores on Monday 7th October 2019.

We appreciate Sandra, Community Champion from the store at Telford Forge Retail Park for keeping us updated on this great initiative.

So what is this scheme about? It is a scheme to enhance the shopping experience of people with hidden disabilities. The initiative will offer shoppers the option to pick up a lanyard, which has been purposely designed to act as a discreet sign for store colleagues to recognise they may need to provide a customer with additional support when in store. 

Staff will be happy to provide extra support such as opening a new checkout lane, assisting with finding shopping items or simply giving them more time at the checkout. Lanyards will be available to collect for free and are for each customer to keep so they can wear it every time they come into store. 

Sainsbury’s are the first supermarket to test the initiative, following Gatwick Airport’s successful launch, in which over 10,000 lanyards had been collected up to March 2019. By using the same sunflower lanyards as Gatwick Airport. Sainsbury’s hope to encourage other retailers to follow suit, meaning customers have the option to wear their lanyard in shops across the UK, in the knowledge that store colleagues will recognise what it stands for. 

Friendly Hour takes place at Sainsbury’s Telford Forge Retail Store each Monday from 9.30 am to 10.30 am https://shropshiredisability.net/friendly-hour-at-sainburys-telford-forge-store-18/

Quiet Hour takes place at Sainsbury’s Whitchurch Store each Tuesday from 10 am-11 am https://shropshiredisability.net/quiet-hour-at-sainburys-whitchurch-store-every-tuesday-8/

A million people in the UK are expected to be living with memory loss by 2025. While there is no cure, there is growing evidence that music can not only help symptoms such as depression and agitation, but also bring these people and their families some much-needed moments of joy.

People with memory loss must be accompanied by a responsible adult. This event is supported by Shropshire Dementia Action Alliance. See poster below for more details.
