DSA(S)’s Family Support Services (FSS) reaches out to parents of persons with Down syndrome by enabling them to work in an informed manner. The endeavour is to ease the stress of parents by providing a better understanding of the common issues faced, by bringing in experts to share their knowledge and skills with them; and to provide information or referrals to other services they may need.
DSA(S) organises and participates in events throughout the year. These events help to raise funds and create awareness for DSA(S) and the abilities of people with Down syndrome. The funds raised go towards operating our educational and enrichment programmes for children and adults with Down syndrome, developing them to become more independent and contributing citizens of society.
