Future of Down’s is a group of parents and self-advocates campaigning for a more balanced and modern view of Down’s syndrome.
We believe that prenatal screening for Down’s syndrome, while recognising expectant parents’ need for improved testing, should be approached in a way that is respectful of the Down’s syndrome community. We ask that:-
Before rolling it out on the NHS, we urge the government to await the findings of the Nuffield Bioethics Committee review, exploring the ethics around Non Invasive Prenatal Testing; and call on the NHS to provide unbiased information about the condition.

A source of friendships and support, plus invaluable information, these parents and self-advocates are now joining together to campaign for those with Down’s syndrome and create a positive acceptance of the condition.
