Synopsis

'I'm a man on a mission to show that life with Down syndrome can be exciting and is worth living, so that other people understand and give us the chance to live life to the full and to be fulfilled.'

Tommy Jessop's acting career spans Line of Duty, multi-award winning roles in short films, various roles on television and the stage. From his emotional role in the hit BBC series, to playing Hamlet on stage, and through his campaigning, Tommy has created real change. He has been at the vanguard of bringing awareness of the need for opportunities and the real potential of people living with Down syndrome to the media, the general public and to government.

A Life Worth Living is Tommy's story and Tommy's philosophy in his own words.

This uplifting read will resonate with anyone who is facing a challenge and has been especially highly praised by families and friends of people living with Down syndrome who find it immensely encouraging.
