Providing support & information about Downs Syndrome in the Essex & North East London area


BBC Documentary starring one of our parent members

One of our members families, Marie and Hannah,  recently took part in a BBC Documentary for Schools on the issue of Abortion.

The Charity were approached by the BBC about a new Programme  they were making for schools on the subject of Life and Death with a series of short documentaries on a variety of life issues. We were approached directly in relation to the subject of Abortion and were asked if any of our members would be willing to take part.

We had a good response and the BBC then carried out interviews to decide who to use. Marie and Hannah were chosen and you can see the results here.

Well done to them for a moving and well formed view on this subject and thanks to all those that offered to take part.
