Down’s Heart Group is a charity offering support and information relating to heart conditions associated with Down’s Syndrome.
The only organisation in this country focusing solely on all aspects of living successfully with Down’s syndrome.
Undertake research and find ways of improving the quality of the lives of people with Down Syndrome.
This support group produces a regular newsletter and arranges social activities for families that have a child with Down’s Syndrome. This includes parents’ evenings and monthly activities at the Thames Valley Adventure Playground.
Families who have children and young people with special needs often deal with similar challenges. They may have concerns about education, services, therapies, respite and other issues directly related to their child. Special Kids in the UK aim is to bring families together for friendship, to share information and to support one another.
A group run by parents, for parents and carers of children with Down syndrome in North Hampshire, Berkshire and Surrey.
We meet up once a month for informal stay and play sessions and also hold other events such as summer trips out, Christmas parties and social evenings for the grown-ups.
In addition to this we run training events for parents, carers and local professionals (such as pre-school and school teachers, portage workers, health visitors and speech therapists).
Swings and Smiles is a fully accessible place for children with special needs and their families to come and play together. Facilities include soft play, sensory room, large play room, cooking and art activities.
As parents we strive to provide on hand experience and information to carers, parents and families touched by those who have Down’s Syndrome. The aim of the group is to meet the needs of local people with Down’s Syndrome, their carers and families and so promote happiness, health, education, and participation in society.
