WE HAVE A LIMITED NUMBER OF LADIES SOCKS STILL AVAILABLE!
We want everyone to celebrate this year’s World Down Syndrome Day so we’re joining Down Syndrome International’s Lots of Socks campaign to get everyone to wear special, limited edition #LOTSOFSOCKS socks.
So whether you are at home, nursery, school, university, work, on holiday or anywhere else, on 21 March 2018, wear LOTS OF SOCKS and invite all your friends, family and colleagues to do the same!
With Christmas now over, it’s time to think about those New Year’s Resolutions.
Please support our appeal to help make sure that people with Down’s syndrome are given the healthcare they need throughout their lives.
Buying this gift allows us to provide half a day of Tell It Right® training. Our TIR® training is Royal College of Midwives accredited and aims to ensure that health professionals have up to date, accurate and balanced information about living with Down’s syndrome.
Buying this gift allows us to provide an initial WorkFit assessment for an individual. Assessments help our Employment Development Officers get a better understanding of the individual’s likes and dislikes so they can be matched with the right employment opportunity.
Buying this gift allows us to provide a Project Worker for an hour at one of our Having a Voice group meetings. ‘Having a Voice’ is about giving people with Down’s syndrome a platform to have their say and be heard. We want to provide opportunities for people to influence their communities and wider society, as well as our work at the DSA.
Buying this gift means we are able to produce 5 copies of the Journal to send out to our members. Our Journal is sent out twice a year to all our members. It contains news, resources, information on benefits, features, profiles of groups, research, stories by our members and book reviews.
Buying this gift allows us to provide an Information Officer for half an hour. Our Information Officers respond to Helpline calls and emails offering information, support and advice to people with Down’s syndrome, their families and the people that support them.
Buying this gift means we are able to produce 5 copies of our New Parents Pack to send to parents. Parents often have lots of questions and can sometimes feel rather overwhelmed by what it means to have a baby with Down’s syndrome. Our New Parents Pack aims to help answer these questions and concerns. It includes information about telling others your feelings, as well as information about Down’s syndrome, feeding your baby and your baby’s development. It also includes our leaflet for Friends and Family to offer more information to relatives.
