If you are local to Devon could recommend any groups and services. It might be, a local toddler group with excellent SEN provision, or a parent support group they may not be specifically Down Syndrome related but have good support provision.

Friends and Families – Devon

Friends and Families

We are a non-profit organisation unique to Plymouth, providing information, support and services for families with disabled children, many of whom describe us as a life saver. Our services give families opportunities to network and create bespoke training and educational environments. We offer individual family support and give advice on relevant issues. We run social and leisure events allowing, ”time-out to have fun” away from the stresses and punishing regime of caring. This allows a vital ‘recharge of batteries’, relieving isolation and time for young carers to have fun. Integrated activities enable children with disabilities opportunities to experience a huge diversity of sports, arts, crafts and music not elsewhere available to them or their families.

Lovely activities for both the children with send and the rest of the families. The workers really understand the situation and are very supportive. We have used the lending library and family support services. Thank you for allowing my youngest to have a break from being a carer
