  • Offering subsidised leisure and activity breaks.
  • Supporting adults with Down’s Syndrome enabling them to enjoy social and leisure opportunities.
  • Organising a wide range of events for all ages – all of which are subsidised to make them accessible to our members and enable members to meet up in a fun and informal way.
  • Organising regular workshops and conferences on all aspects of Down’s Syndrome for parents/carers and interested professionals.
  • Publishing regular newsletters and monthly What’s on Where flyers with information, news, and ideas on all matters related to Down’s Syndrome.
  • Offering parents advice and help on educational, health and social matters related to their child, including problems associated with allowances, benefits, and special needs provision.
