How it works
Invisible Disabilities promotes instant recognition and response to your needs when you wear your Lanyard and or show your communication Card. We are working to change perceptions and the built environment to make your life a whole lot easier.
Your Invisible Disabilities Australia national Access Card and lanyard provides evidence that you need discreet assistance and outlines the nature of the assistance you require. You can either show your card or explain the assistance you need.
