Summer 2022 Newsletter

Hello and welcome to the summer edition of the Down Syndrome Centre North East, and we have lots of updates for you. Where to begin??

National Lottery Good Causes Awards – County Winner!

On Monday we were informed that we're a County Winner of the National Lottery Good Causes Award for the group activities we ran last July and August 2021 at our centre in Carrickmacross. The return to groups last Summer was momentous for us as we wanted to ensure we were able to provide fun, play based sessions, but in a safe and measured manner amongst ever changing covid19 rules and restrictions. This award just goes to show how this has been acknowledged at a very high level. We ran Moo Music for the babies and toddlers; Early Intervention for our pre-schoolers and school ready children; Drama, Mindfulness and Social groups for our school going children as well as individual Occupational Therapy and a three-day workshop with Ceol Connected. We now must wait and hear which 35 organisations make it through to the National Finals. Please keep everything crossed.
