Down Syndrome Liverpool- Parent & Child Support Group

***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 mean time for any virtual support.

Our monthly support group/meet up 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 is very relaxed, although we arrange it for 10am-12 to cater for the school run, there is no 'strict' start time so you can drop in whenever is convenient, but I would advise you to utilise the 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 partners, grandparents and siblings always welcome.

**Please note, play area at the venue is strictly for aged 5 and under**
