About this cause
Sunshine & Smiles is the only specific support network in Leeds for children and young people who have Down's syndrome. Our aims are to improve the lives of and opportunities for people who have Down's syndrome; to create social and recreational opportunities; provide training and support to schools and other agencies; to raise awareness; and to provide employment and training opportunities.
How this cause brings people in the community together
During the coronavirus pandemic we have been able to run some of our activities virtually, but we are aware of the real need in our community to plan for a safe return to our physical space. The refurbished community hall would create a space where Sunshine & Smiles families can come together for regular groups and activities, and also be a place for local people to enjoy.
