Newshub article on UpsideDowns!  2 March 2017

Posted by: UpsideDowns Education Trust

Newshub have done an article on UpsideDowns and Challenge 21!

"We'd give an injured person a crutch to make their lives easier. So why can't we deliver these kids the services they need to succeed, the education that we know actually supports their learning and increases their chances of living independently and gaining employment as adults?"
