The design on our badge has been developed by NHS Wales as part of their Distance Aware initiative. The scheme was established to give individuals and organisations the means to politely remind others to maintain respectful social distancing where possible. Our aim is to make the badge the recognised symbol across the UK for those who wish to maintain a safe distance from others when outside. Our badges form part of our free Distance Aware packs – available to order here.
“As we continue to deal with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we know that people affected by lymphoma have concerns about staying safe” says Karen Rabjohn, Director of Fundraising and Communication at Lymphoma Action. “Our hope is that the badge will act as a reminder to people to keep others safe, and to act as a means of support for people with health issues, carers and those who are generally concerned around taking the next steps towards a ‘new normal.’”
