Charity information

Cheshire Down's Syndrome Support Group

Many new parents leave hospital with little or no information about their child’s diagnosis and this can be frightening experience and very emotional time. CDSSG are continuing to build stronger links with hospitals to provide support for midwives and new parents. Every family’s experiences are different and we work with parents, carers and schools to provide emotional support, practical training and advice to meet their needs.
With continued support, children with Down’s syndrome will make good

Founded 2007
