Lost in Lockdown: Campaigning with our Community

By February 15, 2021No Comments

Lockdown has undoubtedly had a massive affect on all of us. A significant number of our members have approached us with concerns about their college age relatives whose learning and life skills development have been critically impacted by the pandemic.

In response, we’re running a campaign #lostinlockdown:Our Future Matters to lobby MPs to ringfence funding for these students to repeat a year of education if they wish.

This applies to young adults with Down’s syndrome who were 18 or over on 5th November 2020, however we are hoping that all of our members will help by getting behind this campaign. 

If you or a member of your family are impacted by this issue and would like to add your voice to the campaign, please click on this link and complete the form.

We will be in touch with all our members shortly with details of how you can help us by supporting this campaign. Thank you as always for your good will and support.
