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.


Join Us

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.

CDSSG Support Groups

Support Groups

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).

Fundraising CDSSG


Fundraising is not only key to building awareness of our cause but also vitally important to the survival of the Charity. Yearly events are organised for all to come along to, enjoy and support.
