About Down's Syndrome : Awareness Week 2018

19-25 March 2018


This year we’re celebrating all the different ways people with Down’s syndrome make a difference to their communities.

We’ll be highlighting some amazing stories during Awareness Week but we also want to hear from you.

Tell us why #InclusionMatters to you, your family, your school, workplace:

  • Take a picture of your inclusive community.
    Perhaps you could ask them to all wear #LotsOfSocks?
  • Write down how you feel about being part of an inclusive community. Hold the paper in your photograph.
  • Film an interview with the members of your group. Ask them why they like being included and being inclusive.

Share your films, photos and pictures on Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #InclusionMatters.

We’ll also be challenging everyone to be more inclusive

and reminding everyone that the DSA can help them if they have any questions or want extra help.

Find out how we can help here.

Don’t forget to wear your #LotsOfSocks on World Down Syndrome Day. We’d love to see your pictures…just share them on social media with the #LotsOfSocks hashtag!

Text DSAW21 £10 to 70070 to donate to DSA and make a difference today

We’ve also got some great ideas if you want to do some fundraising during Awareness Week.
