Welcome to the Cornwall Down's Syndrome Support Group's Websitea charity run by families affected by Down's syndrome living in Cornwall.
What we do
We offer families a chance to meet, socialise and share information, friendship and support. During the year we organise many fun days out and trips away as well as our annual winter party.
Our new parent support team warmly welcomes parents with a recent diagnosis.
Membership is free and we hold regular drop in sessions around the county where we can signpost our members to services that may be beneficial in an informal setting with entertainment for the children provided.
If you are interested in becoming a member, download a form today.
These groups provide an ideal opportunity for families to meet with others, chat, share experiences and information whilst the children play.
We run 2 groups “Looking Up” aimed at 0 – 5 year olds and “Moving Forward” for children age 5+ (all families welcome).
