Meet the Specials


Five young Sussex people with learning disabilities are starring in a new web-only soap opera. 'The Specials' follows five housemates, four of who have Downs Syndrome, through their daily lives in Brighton.

Lucy, Lewis, Sam, Megan and Hilly have been friends since early childhood. Now aged 19 to 23, they've decided to live together as they enter the world of work and adult relationships.
