Complex Health Needs

Does your child or young person have Down syndrome but also more complex needs? We would love to hear from you.

We know that we don’t always meet everyone’s needs and that we haven’t always got things right… but as part of our consultation process we want to try to improve to ensure we can provide support and activities that are more specific and tailored to the needs of families who may not feel they can ask for support or attend our current sessions.

Sue Hoey is an independent community researcher, and she is undertaking our consultation process so that people feel that they can speak freely and share their views.

We would very much encourage you, if you identify with any of the above, to contact Sue to have a chat or email conversation, or, if there are enough people, for us to arrange a focus group.

Sue Hoey – no. 07946 085575


We do want to hear how we can better support you, so please let us know 😊.
