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.
