“CDSG is a safe and happy place for families like ours to meet and enjoy life together. It’s a place where worries and fears can be shared, and our children’s achievements can be celebrated. It gives families hope that they and their children can and do lead normal, and fulfilling lives.”

Alison Morley – Parent

“The group is really welcoming and friendly – I’m so glad I went along to sunbeams after our baby girl had a diagnosis of Down Syndrome. Jenny is kind, non judgemental and so supportive, the group has given me hope, reassurance and laughs! Jessica is spoilt with cuddles and love and has met fab fellow friends with an extra chromosome too!”

Nichola Holland – Parent

“Being able to talk openly and honestly about our feelings, without feeling we were being judged was invaluable. We discovered that our feelings were normal, that we weren’t bad people for finding it hard at first and we started enjoying Emily for who she is, not what we thought we wanted her to be. 7 years on and we are perfectly happy!”

Melanie Prescott – Parent

“Becky came back with a silver medal for the relay race she was in from the World Swimming Champs in Canada!!! She also swam some personal best times in her individual races. It was an amazing experience.”  Click here to read more…
