An opportunity to share experiences and talk to others in a safe, supportive environment.
*** PLEASE NOTE: Our Monthly Support group/meet up as discussed below is unfortunately suspended until further notice due to Covid-19, however, this does not mean that support for new/expectant parents is unavailable. Please contact directly on the email provided so that we can offer you virtual support.***
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 and is usually arranged for 10am-12 to cater for the school run, but is very relaxed, with no 'strict' start time so you can drop in whenever is convenient, but I would advise you to utilise the time as 2 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.
Venue: To be confirmed, as and when covid restrictions lift.
How often: Takes place once per month
2021 Scheduled Support Group dates are as follows:
To be updated as/when covid restrictions lift.
