Around 750 babies in the UK every year are born with Down’s syndrome. This equates to one in every thousand.
Wednesday 21 March 2018 is World Down Syndrome Day. Led by Down Syndrome International, but linking up with national charities across the world, there will be activities and events taking place to raise awareness and support.
In the UK, the Down’s Syndrome Association also coordinate a full awareness week (19-25 March 2018). This year’s theme celebrates the many different ways people with Down’s syndrome make a difference to their communities. You can read and share amazing stories and follow it all on Twitter (#LotsofSocks and #InclusionMatters).
