Wirral Down Syndrome Education Forum

Wirral Down Syndrome Education Forum supports families and schools by providing training opportunities for parents, carers and professionals to learn more about Down Syndrome and the ways in which they can help the children and young people achieve their potential. The forum runs training events throughout the academic year. Events are designed primarily to meet the needs of families, teachers, teaching assistants and others working in schools but anyone working with or caring for someone with Down Syndrome is welcome to attend. Events are organised by a team of professionals and parents and many events areĀ FREE. Sundowns is an ongoing supporter of the Forum, having provided funding for some events run by the Forum.

  • At least 1 training event each term -usually twilight events 3.30-5.15pm
