        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.

        Umbrella Project for Schools

        For individual schools, we can provide a pack of 25 brightly coloured umbrellas to create their own display on school grounds. The umbrellas have a pre-drilled 5mm hole at the top, which can be used by threading them with wire and hanging them where suitable; we recommend that each school plans their display beforehand. 

        Umbrella Project for Businesses

        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.
