Support Your Community Through Thick & Thin

About Us:

Swindon Downs Syndrome Group are here from the moment you discover your child has Down’s syndrome right through to adulthood.

We need your help so we can continue to offer and even expand our service!

We have been supporting people with Down’s syndrome, and their families since the Group was founded in 1984. We now have over 100 members who range from newborn babies to adults with Down’s syndrome, their parents, carers and supporters in the local community.

We work hard to raise awareness of the work we do to support people with Down’s syndrome, providing information, help and activities to them and their families. Our purpose is to help people with Down’s syndrome to have the same opportunities as everyone else. We offer support from the moment a child is born right through to adulthood and beyond. We have tailor-made resource packs to help parents at every stage of their child’s development. We connect people to essential services available in our local area. Our toddler groups, youth club and family activity days allow our members to regularly meet with each other and build their own network.

We provide regular group activities for our people with Down’s syndrome, giving them a great opportunity to socialise and make friends. From term time football training to weekly tennis sessions; fortnightly and holidays swimming sessions to our Salamander Fire Course; and regular parties and family trips.

We provide each new parent with access to our New Parent contact and a New Parent Congratulation pack that contains the following items:

·         Congratulations Card

·         About SDSG leaflet

·         Early Support Booklet

·         Red Book Inserts for DS

·         Toy

·         Knitted Cardigan (Unisex)

·         Knitted Blanket

·         What I wish I’d Know Book

·         Milestone Cards

·         Box

Each pack costs £35. One of the uses for the funds you help us raise will be used to replenish our stock of these vital packs. We don’t stop there, we go on to supply age appropriate packs at 3 months, 6 months and 1 year.

Thank you for your support and good luck!

Yours sincerely,

Michael Billinge-Jones

Trustee, Swindon Downs Syndrome Group
