Welcome to the East Lancashire Down’s Syndrome Support Group

Supporting people living in East Lancashire with Down’s Syndrome.

Our aim is to provide support to new parents and give them opportunities to meet other families living with Down’s Syndrome. We are a great source of local and general information regarding Down’s Syndrome and we hope to raise awareness and understanding in the local community. We hold monthly meetings on the first Saturday of the month at Whitewell Bottom Community Centre and we have a full range of outdoor and indoor activities for the kids (and adults!)


Flashback to 2012. Lucas' filming at the Etihad with Justin and the Something Special crew. Filmed by Man City TV as the story behind the show for the City Website.

Lucas was 6 and is still just as much of a show off.
