Welcome to Stepping Stones DS

Supporting children and young people with Down Syndrome and their families, one step at a time

Stepping Stones DS supports children and young people with Down Syndrome in North Hampshire, Berkshire and Surrey. The group provides a wide range of support, activities and services for embers and their families. All activities are designed to build confidence and support our members in reaching their potential.

We put a high priority on empowerment and provide training for parents, teachers and other professionals to allow them to better support our members. Stepping Stones DS is an entirely volunteer led, self funding organisation. For information on how to join Stepping Stones DS please see our New Parents page

Back in March, during Down Syndrome Awareness Week, we shared with you some sneak previews of our new 'Our Stories' booklet. Well now we are delighted to tell you they are here!!

Ten years after the first edition, which proved invaluable to so many of our current members, we now have a brand new reprint. A huge thank you to everyone who contributed and helped pull this project together.

These booklets will now be distributed to all local hospitals' maternity and ante-natal departments and all new parents. We hope Our Stories will support families at a time of mixed emotions and offer them some reassurance.
