Changing Perceptions

Three 21 participate in a range of events that are designed to challenge outdated views of Down's Syndrome and change perceptions!

Betsy was chosen to be Leo's Neonatal's mascot for a month, which she used to demonstrate to the world how rich and fulfilled her life is. Alongside that, we participated in Neonatal Mental Health Awareness week 2019, running an Instagram discussion on Down's Syndrome. Three 21 regularly share uplifting stories of positivity about Down's Syndrome across our social media platforms that engage thousands. We participate in events that give us a platform to promote better awareness of Down's Syndrome and provide opportunities at our own events for others to share in the celebration of people with Down's Syndrome in the North East.
