Sunshine & Smiles is a registered charity that provides a support network in Leeds for children and young people who have Down syndrome and their families. Until we were founded by a small group of parents, Leeds did not have a support network to help children and families living with Down syndrome. Sunshine & Smiles fulfils this important need and provides a vital role in the community. The charity is parent led and is overseen by a team of four trustees. We have three paid freelance workers who are; a service manager and two support workers. We aim to improve the lives and opportunities for children and young people with Down syndrome. We offer speech and language therapy, regular groups and activities, individual support and advocacy for families, as well as raising awareness and challenging preconceptions in the wider community. We are able to achieve this by establishing links with hospitals, health and education professionals and connecting with other related charities.
