An opportunity to share experiences and talk to others in a safe, supportive environment.
***Our Monthly Support group will finally be resuming as off next month, unless there are any changes with regards to lockdown restrictions. Please see below for up to date information regarding dates, time and venue***
Please do not hesitate to get in touch in the meantime for any virtual support that you may require
Our monthly support group is aimed at new, expectant and existing parents/carers of young children with Down Syndrome, aged between 0-5 years old.
Not only is the support group a prime opportunity to meet new families who share the same amazing journey, but it is also a great opportunity to exchange tips and advice, tell stories, and let the children interact through play.
The meet up occurs once per month, always on a Friday, and from 10am until 12 to cater for the school run. It is very relaxed, with no 'strict' start time so you can drop in whenever is convenient, but I would advise you to utilise the full allocated time as two hours goes so quickly when chatting away. Even if your loved ones are at school or nursery, you are still invited to pop along anyway for a catch up and a cuppa, with immediate family always welcome to accompany you, including siblings.
*Please note play area is strictly for aged 5 and under*
Venue: Family and Friends PlayCentre, Prescot Gospel Hall, Evans Street, Prescot L34 6HU
How often: Takes place once per month, always a Friday and runs from 10am until 12
