Downs in Dorset  offers support for parents of children aged between 0-5 years of age with Downs Syndrome in Dorset.

Their aims are to promote awareness of the group to others who may not even know that this support exists, reduce stigma and increase acceptance of children with Downs Syndrome within the local and wider community.

They are also looking to get a speech and language therapist, physiotherapist and occupational therapist to attend the group to help assist and offer advice to parents and encourage their children’s development.
