Down Syndrome Centre – North East Â (DSC NE)Â is a start-up, non-profit organisation which will provide subsidised, essential services to individuals with Down Syndrome and their families in the counties of Monaghan, Cavan, Louth and Meath. We hope to open the doors to this new centre, located in Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan in January 2018. The centre will be run by a group of parents of children with Down Syndrome on a voluntary basis.
We are having a Family Fun Day Celebrating Down Syndrome as a way to introduce ourselves to families in the North East. This will be happening on 24th September in the Phoenix Centre, Carrickmacross from 2-5pm.Â There will be a range of indoor and outdoor activities (weather permitting, of course!).Â We will provide information on the services the centre will offer upon opening. We are also interested to gain feedback on what services families would like to see on offer in the future.
Please see attached poster outlining the details of the event.
