Do you have it in you to see past my Down’s Syndrome?

This year we successfully ran our first ever TV advert that ran during awareness week. The advert natasha-1stars one of our members, Natasha Connon and appeared on STV throughout awareness week. We received a great response from the advert both from our members and non-members.

Thank you to the Scottish Government for funding our 2017 awareness raising campaign.

Do you have it in you to see past my Down’s Syndrome?  

All too often people with Down’s syndrome experience stigma and discrimination because of their learning disability. Often we find this is due to a misinformed public opinion about what Down’s syndrome is and what to expect from individuals with Down’s syndrome.

The purpose of our advert is to show that people with Down’s syndrome can and do live ordinary lives. Their abilities and successes are the same as our abilities and successes. And ultimately Down’s syndrome is just a small part of who they are. Find out more here.
