November - Family Support Clinic Updates

Family Support Clinic – Do you need help with your DLA form? Do you want some strategies for managing bedtime?  Or simply a chat about any worries or concerns with someone else with first-hand experience?

One of our Family Support Workers is available to offer advice and information.

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!

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.

We will be running family support clinics in Bridgwater, Weston-super-Mare and Dorchester. Appointments for each clinic are available between 10 am and 2 pm and must be booked in advance.

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.

You can book an appointment on our Family Support Clinic page.
