Down's syndrome support group

Are you the parent of a child or adult with Down’s syndrome? If yes, you may be interested in joining the Eddie’s Downs syndrome support group.

Who we are

Eddie's offers a Down’s syndrome support service which is provided by a group of parents of children and adults with Down’s syndrome. We support each other, share the benefit of our experience and also promote the welfare of people with Down’s syndrome in the wider community. We offer a wide range of activities for families, including baby and toddler sessions, evening meetings, an annual summer party and for families with young children, one-to-one support if needed.

Ways we can help

Cambridge Down's Syndrome Support Group

Our friendly, informal group for families with young children with Down's syndrome meets on the first Saturday of every month. The sessions are a great chance for children to play together, while parents, carers and grandparents can chat and share information and ideas. All are welcome and the tea and coffee flows freely.

For more information call Matt and Laura on 07812 348189 or email us at dssgcambridge@gmail.com

Useful resources

There is a lot of information about Down’s syndrome and relevant support organisations available, but sifting through it can be time consuming and sometimes overwhelming. We suggest you start with just two websites: the Down’s Syndrome Association at www.downs-syndrome.org.uk and Down Syndrome Education International at www.downsed.org – both are very informative resources.
