The council has also provided grants of £750 over this and last year towards the new Alphabet Garden.

Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Scheme in Helmsley & Ryedale

Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Scheme in Helmsley & Ryedale

Ryedale residents with a hidden disability can now pick up a sunflower lanyard designed to act as a discreet sign to others that they may need additional help.

The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower has increasingly been adopted by large supermarkets and airports, as it allows everyone with a hidden disability to choose to be subtly visible when they need to be.

NYCC's Stronger Communities team is rolling out the scheme with Ryedale's five town councils and local voluntary organisations Ryedale Special Families, Ryedale Sight Support and Camphill Village Trust. Ryedale District Council is also supporting it. More »

Helmsley Town Council is proud to support the scheme, has joined, and is providing free sunflowers for Helmsley's residents and visitors with Hidden Disabilities. They will soon be available from the Co-op, Costcutters and Todds. Bransdale View Extra Care facility has some for its residents.

Helmsley residents who cannot get a sunflower should contact the Town Council please.

For more information see the Helmsley Town Council website under 'Community'. » Less
