World Down Syndrome Day

Down syndrome , also referred to as Down's syndrome, is just one of many different types of learning disability. Most people have two copies of chromosome 21, while those with three copies of chromosome 21 have Down syndrome. This is why we celebrate World Down Syndrome Day on 21 March each year and encourage people to Rock Your Socks in March.

How Rock Your Socks will help


Could help us transform a garden space for people with a learning disability so they can enjoy time outside in a safe and comfortable place.  


could help provide access to sport and recreational activities so people with a learning disability can socialise and break the loneliness and isolation they face. 


could help offer families an extra six Saturday clubs, opening up opportunities for learning and socialising on an ongoing basis and enabling us to reach children and families who are not accessing early intervention services at present.

Get involved

Wear your funkiest socks and donate or fundraise with friends. Joining in the fun is easy and with our handy resources and friendly fundraising team on hand to support, your plans will rock!
