The 21st March is World Down syndrome day

17 Feb 2022,

The 21st March is World Down syndrome day


The 21st March is World Down syndrome day. The date is significant because a person with Down syndrome has 3 copies of the 21st chromosome and so the 21st day of the 3rd month is chosen to help raise awareness.

This year we are aiming to raise awareness across health and educational services.


Please find attached a poster and leaflet detailing the services we can provide for health and maternity care services.

We would like to encourage members involved in health provision to display the poster and browse the attached leaflet.

If you would like a printed copy of the poster and leaflet please let us know and we will pop them in the post.


We would like to encourage members involved in educational provision download our poster and, if in a school setting, to download our recorded assembly.

The assembly is about 20 minutes long and can be downloaded for free direct from our website:

Assembly on Down syndrome | Down Syndrome T&SS (

If you would like a printed copy of the poster please let us know,

Thank you Wendy Uttley
