Cheshire Down’s Syndrome Support Group (CDSSG) is a charity that supports over 175 people with Down’s syndrome and their families in Cheshire. We won’t give up until children, young people and adults with Down’s syndrome get care, support and the opportunities they deserve to unlock their potential.

We educate and support parents, carers and professionals to help develop people with Down’s syndrome through training, educational conferences, development sessions and family fun events.
