On 3 September, Deputy Lieutenant, Bill Cockcroft had the pleasure of attending the Launch of Medway’s non-visible disability initiative to support those with hidden disabilities at Rochester Cathedral.

This initiative aims to tackle the impact of non-visible disabilities by teaching local businesses how they can adapt and make small changes to help customers who may have a non-visible disability. Non-visible disabilities include health conditions, such as Parkinson’s or heart failure, which are not immediately obvious. People with non-visible disabilities can have difficulties not accessing what they need which impacts to their day-to-day life.

Medway Council has more information on this important initiative which the Lieutenancy was pleased to support.
