This year is a very exciting one for us here at the Down’s Syndrome Association (DSA) as we are celebrating our 50th birthday!
In the last 50 years, people with Down’s syndrome have made amazing strides forward. That’s why we want to make 2020, the DSA’s 50th anniversary, a year of celebration.
We’ll be sharing the stories of people with Down’s syndrome who have lived, thrived and surpassed expectations through the last 50 years as well as celebrating the role that the DSA has played, and continues to play, in radically changing the landscape for people with Down’s syndrome… in education, health, employment and awareness, and understanding in society as a whole.
Here’s just some of the ways we’ll be marking our 50th year:
Check out #DSA50 and #OurStories on our social media and you’ll see all the ways we are sharing your stories and making this year one to remember.
We have been very fortunate to receive funding for some of our 50th birthday projects from the Heritage Lottery Fund and thank all players of the National Lottery for making this project possible.
