We’re taking part in the National Emergencies Trust Local Action Fund. Donations to our project will be matched by the fund up to the value of £250 to help us overcome the effects of the pandemic.
Please note only one donation per supporter will be matched by the National Emergencies Trust Local Action Fund.
We organise free groups and events to improve the lives and opportunities of children and families living with Down syndrome in Leeds. This includes speech and language therapy, regular groups and activities, individual support and advocacy for families, as well as raising awareness and challenging preconceptions in the wider community.
Our sessions include; football, dance, swimming, music, singing, and structured play for younger children.
We understand each family will need different support at various times of their young persons development, and we want the support we offer to be as individual as possible depending on a family’s needs. Our charity is parent led and carry a wealth of experience and knowledge.
We can offer home or hospital visits, email or telephone contact and we have regular groups and activities you can drop into.
There are a number of other areas we can offer help with such as completing forms for Disability Living Allowance, Carer’s Allowance, and talking through and helping with Education, Health and Care plan assessments.
We also have a wonderful partnership with Phoenix Health and Wellbeing where all our families can access complementary therapies or counselling free of charge.
If we can’t help, we will find out where there is someone who can.
