Down Syndrome Dublin is the Dublin branch of Down Syndrome Ireland and is the founding and oldest branch of the organisation. We are an organisation of parents and families, striving to enhance the lives of our children through Inclusion, Independence and Choice.
There are approximately 380 members in our branch, ranging in age from babies to adults. The branch is run by a committee of parent volunteers who meet once a month to discuss the running and organisation of our branch. We provide a range of services, classes, therapies and activities for all age groups. All of these are organised by parent volunteers.
