Welcome to the Portsmouth Down Syndrome Association, also known as Footprints.

Footprints provides friendship, advice and a range of specialist services to children and their families in Portsmouth, and the surrounding areas of South Hampshire.
Our activities include coffee and information mornings, drama groups, social events and seasonal parties. We warmly welcome new families with a baby with Down syndrome.

We also provide a wide range of specialist educational services including early development groups, communication therapy, and a school outreach service (currently supporting our children in 40 schools across the area), as well as training for parents and professionals.

Please contact us if you would like to find out more.
