Why we need your help

This family-centred project that supports children and young people with Down syndrome to acquire essential skills; empowering them to progress. This unique project focuses on the specific learning needs of children with Down syndrome and provides a safe space for children and families to build friendships within peer groups, develop practical skills, boost confidence and celebrate successes whilst encouraging every child to realise their individual potential.

We deliver fun-packed weekly sessions to three groups; 0-4yrs, 5-11yrs and 12-18yrs. This separation helps address social/developmental needs most relevant to the child/young person’s next steps e.g. preparing a child with Down syndrome for nursery/primary school is very different from the challenges faced by a child entering/nearing the end of secondary school. Groups are then split according to ability rather than age, to focus on:

  • Speech/Language/Communication (including Makaton)
  • Literacy/Numeracy
  • Sensory Play
  • Fine/Gross Motor-Skills
  • Social Skills/Emotional Wellbeing
  • School Preparation

Our amazing volunteers provide much needed support that enables this service to be delivered in a cost effective way. Volunteers provide over 400 hours of support annually. 

Delivering Together 21 costs £83,000 per year. This pays for staffing, sessional group  leaders, volunteer expenses, client activity resources and operational costs. These costs are met through a contribution from parents, grant funding/fundraising activities and support from Pioneering Care Partnership Board. We are therefore seeking additional funding to provide this vital support service to our Together 21 families.

We are seeking to identify support from organisations who are able to commit to our fundraising campaign . 

How can you help?

A donation of £1,500 will sponsor a child for a full year of support at Together 21.

This provides:

  • 184 hours of facilitated learning sessions for children aged 0-4 years;
  • 92 hours of facilitated learning sessions for children aged 5-11;
  • 92 hours of facilitated learning sessions for children aged 12-18;
  • 3,680 respite hours for carers

Other donations amounts are welcome and would be put towards these costs and other related costs such as, resources and specialists speech and language therapist sessions.
