Downs Side Up 


Hayley blogs at Downs Side Up, Special Needs Jungle and writes for the Huffington Post UK. She works closely with several UK learning disability charities such as the Down’s Syndrome Association and Mencap, and writes articles and provides media interviews on the realities of life with Down’s syndrome. She is particularly passionate about increasing unbiased information for families at point of diagnosis, and has featured in media outlets including Radio 4's  Woman’s Hour, BBC Sunday Morning Live, ITV’s Daybreak and the Lorraine Show. She was recently tipped by the Financial Times as ‘the campaign blog from the front line’ to watch.

Her daughter Natty, 7, is a clothing model, most recently featured in the Sainsbury’s Back to School campaign, and is an ambassador in her own right for children with disabilities everywhere.
