It's time to dig deep in the sock drawer and pull out odd socks to wear for the upcoming and nationally recognised awareness day, World Down Syndrome Day, on Monday 21 March.
Why odd socks you ask? It's all about spreading the message that people with Down syndrome are different, but the same!
Together 21 (T21) is a Pioneering Care Partnership (PCP) project that supports children and young people with Down syndrome, and their families, to acquire essential skills to equip them to meet the future with confidence.
The Rock Your Socks 2022 #T21RYS2022 Rebooted is a campaign by T21 and PCP, that aims to raise awareness of Down syndrome in a light-hearted way, highlight our work and help raise vital funds needed to support our children and their families.
Here at T21, we know that early intervention is essential to target the specific learning profiles of children with Down syndrome. We work to empower parents and to support a child’s development by providing access to training, the sharing of information and practical advice.
All children have the right to develop to their full potential. Our service includes regular classes and other educational activities specifically designed for children with Down syndrome. These classes are planned and guided by renowned specialists and delivered to both the child and parent, allowing learning to be extended into family home life.
On Monday 21st March 2022 the world will be coming together to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day! Jump in with both feet and join millions of people who will be standing tall and showing support by wearing outrageous, colourful and non-matching socks, spreading awareness and fun throughout the land. None of us like feeling left out, and people with Down syndrome are no exception, they want to be included too! So reach out and get to know the person, not the condition.
If you would like to come together and help us make a difference, please join the campaign to proudly shout: What does inclusion mean?
