Welcome and congratulations on the birth of your child, be it yesterday or twenty years ago! We at the Foundation are working for all persons with Down’s syndrome to improve their health and help them live a long and happy life.

We want to help get the foundations of health right in people with DS, as well as working on the frontiers of medical research.  By getting ‘basics’ right we can already make improvements in health and quality of life, for example reducing the incidence of obesity in DS.

In these sections, we will share resources, information and further reading.  It cannot, however, stand in for a doctor, so don’t forget to see them if you’re concerned about your loved one.

Find out more about why research is important.
