Like most public buildings, we understand the importance behind the sunflower lanyard as we recognise not all disabilities are visible.
Our staff are trained to help, support, listen, and recognise that you may need that extra bit of time in our shops too.
To help us identify those who have hidden disabilities such as autism, please ensure you have your sunflower lanyard visible.
Sunflower lanyards are available to can purchase here.
Like most public buildings, Derbion welcomes assistance dogs in the centre. If your dog does not wear a high-vis jacket or harness, it is sometimes difficult for our staff to recognise the difference between assistance dogs and pets, which are not allowed in our centres.
Assistance dogs terms and conditions.
- will not wander freely around the premises
- will sit or lie quietly on the floor next to their owner
- are unlikely to foul in a public place
- access to assistance dogs is on a one dog per handler basis
