Description

Down’s Syndrome Scotland (DSS) is a parent-led charity which was established in 1982. We are the only charity in Scotland dedicated solely to supporting people with Down’s Syndrome (DS) and their carers.

The Edinburgh and Lothians branch...

The Edinburgh Branch has been active for over 20 years and is based at the national office on Balgreen Road, Edinburgh.

The aims of the branch are to provide a welcoming and friendly point of contact for anyone with Down’s syndrome and their families; to ensure that the groups and regular activities it operates are relevant, fun, well run and accessible to all who want to take part, and; to do everything it can to ensure that the positive messages about people with Down’s syndrome are heard over the negative ones.

The Family Support Service Officer for the Edinburgh and Lothians area is Morag Dalrymple, Morag supports families and professions with a range of issues including early years development, education, behaviour concerns and support assessing adult services.
