About

Parents, Relatives & Other Understanding Down’s ( PROUD )

a group of us went camping to Golden Valley Caravan park in Derbyshire

PROUD is a parent led support group based in Walsall, West Midlands (UK) which was set up in August 2004 by parents who had children with Down’s syndrome

We meet up once a month ( please see events page for details of our  meetings )

Our aims are to provide for the needs of individuals with Down’s syndrome…

  • To offer support, acceptance, advice and encouragement for parents, carers, family and friends of persons with Down’s syndrome.
  • To increase awareness and knowledge of issues relating to Down’s syndrome.
  • To educate the community about the presence, the potential and the needs of people with Down’s syndrome.

This group is open to anyone who is a parent, relatives, carers, and friends of people with Down’s syndrome and we invite you to come along and join us for any of the meetings and events that we hold throughout the year.

PROUD is run by parents/carers of children with Down’s syndrome and we rely totally upon any donations that people send to us to help us.  All donations received are spend on helping the children and their families living life to the full and we thank you for your kindness in the donations we receive
