We have some exciting new opportunites to get involved in our consultation process- shaping the future of Sunshine and Smiles. See our post on 'Focus Groups' for more informaiton, or if your child or young person doesn't currently access our services see 'Help Us Build a Better Service'.

There's an opportunity to get involved in supporting The Down Syndrome Bill which is due to be voted on by MPs later this month. 

We also have lots of 'Thank You's to give to our corporate and invidivudal supporters and fundraisers for recent achievements.
