WhatsApp Groups

We have WhatsApp groups for parents and carers of every age of children and adults with Down Syndrome. These provide a safe space for people to share their experiences, ask questions and support each other. We will also use these groups to remind people of upcoming events and groups. 

  • Sunbeams – For parents and carers of those aged 0-4
  • Sunflowers – For parents and carers of those aged 2-8
  • Smilers – For parents and carers of those aged 8-14
  • Sunshine Youth Group - For parents and carers of those aged 11-18
  • Sunshine Adults – For those aged 18+ and/or their parents and carers

The overlap in ages is to allow people to transition from one group to the next at the right time for them. 

Some of our groups e.g. football, cricket also have their own WhatsApp groups to keep people up to date on events. 

If you would like to join any of our WhatsApp groups, you can use this link to request to join our 'WhatsApp Community', from where you will be able to see all the available groups:
