Down’s syndrome

On behalf of the IPD we would like to draw your attention to a press release welcoming the historic November 26th 2021 ruling that people with Down’s syndrome will be legally recognised as a minority after landmark backing in parliament.
It puts them on a footing with other minorities with councils and schools needing to meet their needs. Conservative cabinet minister Liam Fox brought this bill forward with the National Down Syndrome Policy Group.  Care minister Gillian Kegan said the bill would make “a significant difference to ensuring health, education, social care and housing needs are met” .
