The easiest way to take part in Rare Disease Day 2021 is to make sure you are following us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram so you can re-share our content. Tag us in your content so we can share it and add it to our social media stories. Remember to always use the hashtags #RareDiseaseDay2021 and #RareReality
Take part in the #ShowMeYourRare challenge and use your photos and videos to show us you have a rare condition, without actually telling us you have a rare condition.

As we can’t hold our usual Parliamentary events this year, we will be hosting a virtual event to hear from people affected by rare conditions, explore the new UK Rare Diseases Framework which promises to improve the lives of all those affected by rare conditions and hear from health ministers from across the UK about how they are planning to implement the Framework in their nation.
We’ve got an exciting line up including representatives from the Association of British Pharmaceutical Industry, MP Liz Twist and individuals affected by rare conditions who will be hosting Twitter takeovers in the week leading up to Rare Disease Day. Make sure you are following our Twitter account so you can be part of the conversation.
