Sunshine and Smiles
This support network is entirely funded by grants and donations and is run by volunteers and is part of the Leeds Short Breaks Partnership.
The group provides support to the parents, carers and families who have a child or young person with Down Syndrome in Leeds.
In March 2010, having met at an NHS care pathway meeting, three parents who have children with Down Syndrome realised that there wasn't a specific support network for families who have a child or young person with Down
They started running their first group sessions in September 2011 and now meet at Stainbeck Community Hall every other Monday and on monthly Saturday afternoons.
Sunshine and Smiles have activities for children; musical instruments, tactile play, water play, painting, singing and signing... siblings are welcome too! And they have regular guest speakers.
Tea, coffee, juice and other refreshments are also available.
There is no other specific support group or network in Leeds for children and young people with Down Syndrome and their families.
