Making Supported Living Work for People with Down’s Syndrome: Information for Support Staff

It contains some basic information about Down’s syndrome, details of
some of the challenges people may face and tips about how you can support a person to overcome these challenges.

If you would like to discuss any of the points made in this guide or you have questions about someone you are working with, please call our helpline on 0333 1212 300.
