About Down's Syndrome : Awareness Week 2018

19-25 March 2018


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

We shared loads of amazing stories during Awareness Week…thank you to EVERYONE who got involved and told us why #InclusionMatters.

We also challenged everyone to be more inclusive

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

Loads of people wore their #LotsOfSocks on World Down Syndrome Day and shared some gorgeous pictures on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!

Thank you to everyone who bought socks, donated or held a fundraising event for us…it was an astonishing week and we’re incredibly grateful.
