Huddersfield Down Syndrome Support Group was founded and is voluntary run by parents of children with Down Syndrome in the Huddersfield area.
We are a registered charity (no.1096206)
HDSSG arrange social, sporting and educational events and activities for children with Down Syndrome and their families. We expect the remit of HDSSG to continue to expand as our children grow into adulthood and we are always open to suggestions for new activities and ways in which we can support our members.
We believe it is crucial to celebrate our children’s achievements, champion their views and aspirations, challenge out-dated thinking and spread current, accurate information about Down Syndrome. Our strategy to achieve this includes inviting a dialogue with the Local Authority (health and education), supporting and empowering family members to advocate on behalf of their child and sharing our knowledge with any professionals who may benefit.
People with Down Syndrome and their families have free membership of our group if they live within Huddersfield/Halifax please contact us to register.
Thank you to all our families that have allowed us to share their wonderful photos on the site.
