Welcome to Bromley DSSG
Join our Community
The Bromley Down Syndrome Support Group is a community of families in the London Borough of Bromley who have family members with Down Syndrome.
Our group offers a network of support and engagement for parents, carers and family members and we welcome new members.
Being part of a community that understands and can support you
in navigating a new path
can be invaluable.
How We Help
Advice and Support
The BDSSG offers advice and support about what health, education and social services are available and how to access them. Group members are always on hand to offer tips and tools to help manage the day-to-day practicalities of having a child with Down Syndrome.
BDSSG holds tea and catch up sessions on the last Sunday of every month from 2pm til 4pm. These are held at the Phoenix Centre in Bromley.
There are regular Mum’s/Dad’s nights out, where we meet for dinner and a relaxed chat at a restaurant in Bromley.
We hold social occasions such as our fantastic family fun day, which give families, extended families and friends a chance to all get together socially and get to know each other.
The BDSSG works with local health centres to provide a more realistic and positive view of Down Syndrome that enables midwives and other health professionals to adapt the way they interact with local families about Down Syndrome.
The group is working on some exciting new projects that will provide opportunities for our children and young people with Down Syndrome to develop their social and communication skills and get their creativity going...so watch this space!
