As part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations, we are holding a national raffle through our local branch network throughout Ireland. We have 25 branches across Ireland that offer a range of services and supports to children and adults with Down syndrome and their families.

Your support will help make a real difference to the lives of children and adults with Down syndrome.
