Family Support Clinics
Ups and Downs Southwest provides a Family Support Clinic in North Somerset.
Appointments at the Clinic are bookable in advance and provide individual access to a Family Support Worker in a confidential environment.
For families living in Somerset, appointments can be made to see a family support worker at our office base in Westonzoyland.
We always wish to respond to need so if there is a high demand in our neighbouring Counties, we will always look to provide additional clinic sessions where there is enough demand.
This is a free service available to families who have a child or young person with Down Syndrome and is provided by friendly and approachable Family Support Workers who have a wealth of experience and knowledge to share.
We can help you with all of these things and more.
Clinic appointments can be made to discuss matters such as an upcoming school meeting, strategies for managing bedtime or completion of your DLA Form or whatever else concerns you.
To enable us to continue to provide a holistic and personal service to our families our Family Support Team are now going to be available at three different venues throughout the region each month.
Appointments for each clinic are available between 10 am and 2 pm they are booked in up to two-hour slots and must be booked in advance. Unfortunately, we are not able to run the clinics during School holidays
Supporting you in this way means that our Family Support Team are able to reach many more families in need than if individual home visits were provided.
Should you prefer you can always call us on 01278 691100 to book your appointment.
