The Neurodiversity Umbrella Project is an uplifting visual representation of all the different minds we have here in the UK.
Every Umbrella Project installation helps to raise awareness and understanding of neurodiversity. Thousands of colourful umbrellas are strung together over public spaces, in schools, and in company buildings around the nation. Each display is designed to represent the one in five of us who have a neurodevelopmental condition, such as ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia or Tourette’s syndrome. These conditions fall under the umbrella term of neurodiversity.
We are changing the perception of neurodiverse/neurodivergent people and celebrating all the many strengths that come from thinking differently.

The Umbrella Project relies on engagement from businesses, both big and small, to reach as many people as possible. There are several ways to get involved, be that on a local level or nationwide, and we’d love to have you and your business on board.
