Down’s Heart Group

Did you know about the “Down’s Heart Group”? It’s free to join.

From Friday 8th – Sunday 10th September, Down’s Heart Group will be running an activity weekend for adults (16+) with Down’s Syndrome and heart conditions – repaired or not. This will take place at Mount Cook Activity Centre in the Peak District (DE4 4LS).

They are offering one free place to a young adult and one free place to their parent or carer, with subsidies for extra family members.

The aim of the weekend is to give the members with Down’s Syndrome a fabulous time on outdoor activities whilst giving them chance to have a little independence and make new friends. The parents and carers will have a separate itinerary of activity and pampering.

On Saturday 9th September, also at Mount Cook, they are running a Fun Day for under 16s with Down’s Syndrome and heart problems – repaired or not. There will be ball skills sessions, drama, games and activities. To cover lunch and refreshment costs they are asking for £5 per person or £15 per family, siblings welcome.

All places for either event must be booked in advance. Please contact or 0300 102 1644 to book or to find out more.
