The Down's Syndrome Association London Branch was formed in June 2000 to try to meet the needs of a number of young children with Down's Syndrome and their families. Along with most other DSA branches we have now become a separate entity as requested by the DSA in 2002. This will enable us to fundraise from sponsors who do not give to branches of national charities and handle our own financial affairs. If you are interested in helping us please contact us.
