The majority of members are parents of children/adults with Down's syndrome. Other members comprise of professionals from the Medical and Educational sectors, and volunteers.

The project started in February 2004 when four families met at the instigation of Dr Ian Jefferson, at the American Hospital who offered a room for families to meet and give each other support. New families were then directed to the support group, which has since grown to include over 100 members from 25 different nationalities. The ages of the children range from birth to 35 years.

In the past, the group has welcomed professionals from overseas to conduct lectures and conferences. It runs social events, walks, and fun-days.

The support group has an excellent, if ageing web site: you will find more information here... It also has a hotline if you need someone to call: 050-8809225.
