Down’s Syndrome Scotland’s vision is that society fully accepts and includes people with Down’s syndrome. 

Every day we support families and people with Down’s syndrome to reach their fullest potential by providing a range of services, influencing public policy and by changing attitudes. We urgently need funding to help families who are struggling right now.

People with Down’s syndrome tell us they want to be active members of their communities, they want to be visible, valued and included.

Every month we receive calls for help from family members worried about the mental health of their son, daughter, brother or sister due to loneliness, isolation or exclusion.

Your donation is vital. Because of you, our committed Family Support Team can connect with every person with Down’s syndrome in Scotland who need us – please donate and help improve the quality of life of everyone with Down’s syndrome living in Scotland.

£5 Will provide a ‘welcome to the world’ signing book for parents of new-born babies with Down’s syndrome

£10 Will help us tackle loneliness & isolation among teenagers with Down’s syndrome
