MediaCityUk at Salford Quays and Church Alley in Liverpool City Centre are being shaded by 500 umbrellas in the campaign to raise awareness of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism.
Each umbrella has been signed by children many of whom have ADHD, autism or other neurodevelopment conditions. The project is devised by the ADHF Foundation and sponsored by Equazen, which makes omega-3 and omega-6 supplements https://www.adhdfoundation.org.uk.
“The ADHD Foundation Umbrella Project is a really inspirational initiative that Equazen is part of” said Dr Emma Derbyshire, a public health and nutritional advisor to Equazen. “As a project, it illustrates the complexity and broad spectrum of behavioural issues associated with ADHD — and the need for a range of treatment options and support.”
The umbrellas will be out until September.
