Everyone can help to maintain social distance



Social distancing can be challenging for everyone.

The 'Please give me space' initiative is a concept developed by Hidden Disabilities Sunflower in collaboration with The Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) and the UK Government's Cabinet Office.

If you find it difficult to socially distance, you can display this emblem when you go out to signal to others around you that they need to pay attention and give you space. The yellow circle with a person in the centre has two arrows pointing out either side to indicate space; 'Please give me space'.
