The DSI Waterford Branch is a support group for families of and people with Down Syndrome in Waterford and South Kilkenny. We work to help people with Down Syndrome reach their full potential by providing information and support to them, their families, carers and professionals.

To achieve our aim, we have a three-pronged approach: activities for members, family support network and raising awareness of Down syndrome among professionals and the public. 

As a branch we aim to provide as best we can for the needs of our members. An important focus for the foreseeable future is providing necessary therapies such as Speech and Language Therapy and Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy as they battle long waiting lists.

To achieve our aim, we rely on charitable donations from generous members of the public and organisations in Waterford and south Kilkenny. 

What can you do?  Should anybody wish to simply make a contribution, all donations are massively appreciated. A donation of €150 will allow a member to receive two private Speech and Language Therapy session, the current public waiting list is over 12months. It is important to note that all monies raised through this sponsorship will go directly to the Branch.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Many Thanks,
Louise Doogue and Deirdre Leahy
