Get to know us


The BDSSG has been running for over 25 years and there are over 50 families who make up the support group with family members of all ages who have Down Syndrome.

The BDSSG promotes positive awareness and inclusion of Down Syndrome by engaging with the Local Authority, local medical centres and the community.

Liz Fiorini

Liz has been running the the Bromley DSSG since 2009. She is married to Peter and has three children Sophie, Rosa and Isabel, and her youngest daughter Isabel has Down Syndrome. Liz works in Early Years Education and has been a Pre-School Practitioner for over 20 years.


Liz is thrilled that the Support Group has become a Registered Charity. The Group can now expand its horizons and as well as continuing to offer practical support and advice to families and holding social events, the Trustees are working collaboratively with the London Borough of Bromley to produce a Down syndrome pathway that will ultimately prepare our children for independence and living a fulfilled life.

'Don't limit me' - our aim is to ensure that everyone involved in the care and education of our children has the same high expectations of them as we do!
