The Down Syndrome Association (DSA) in the United Kingdom celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2020. One of the activities during that year was to collect life stories of people with Down-Syndrome, who also had their 50th birthday in 2020.
Celebrating our 50th anniversary
In the last 50 years, people with Down’s syndrome have made amazing strides forward. That’s why we wanted to make 2020, the DSA’s 50th anniversary, a year of celebration.
We celebrated the stories of people with Down’s syndrome who have lived, thrived and surpassed expectations through the last 50 years. We distributed these stories throughout the year. You can read our stories using the link below.
We’ll also be celebrating the role that the Down’s Syndrome Association has played, and continues to play, in radically changing the landscape for people with Down’s syndrome … in education, health, employment and awareness, and understanding in society as a whole.
DSA is member in EDSA ever since EDSA’s foundation. It is the oldest DS-organization in Europe. Congratulations with the 50th anniversary!
