Today marks the launch of a trial TFL initiative to help those with hidden disabilities when it comes to travelling in and around London. The new ‘Please offer me a seat’ badges are very similar to the extremely successful ‘Baby on board badges’ and aim to help those with hidden disabilities get a seat on public transport.
Linda Lascelles, CEO of Afasic comments ‘This initiative helps make a hidden disability visible. This is an extremely positive step to raising awareness of many hidden conditions including speech, language and communication disabilities.’
