Building on the campaign by Grace Warnock, StudioLR as funded by Life Changes Trust (Edinburgh, Scotland) has designed a new "Any Disability" symbol to encourage awareness of people with invisible disabilities. Last week, Martin Whitfield, MP for East Lothian, led a Commons debate on invisible disabilities. Receiving full cross-party support, the new Any Disability symbol represents the full range of people who need to use accessible toilets and other facilities.
The symbol has received public shows of support from people who have experienced prejudice—this demonstrates how design can help change people's everyday lives. Lucy Richards, StudioLR's creative director explains: "We created the new Any Disability symbol because people with a hidden disability have the right to access facilities and services without having to explain their personal circumstances. It’s about building awareness as well as preventing prejudice.”
