It is for young people (16+) and adults with Down’s syndrome.
It’s for people who don’t get out and about much. It’s also about making new friends and taking part in activities in your local area.
Friends Connect is running Friends Groups in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen and Fife. The group only meets every 6 weeks.
You will be paired up with someone who likes the same kind of things as you do. You will also have a volunteer mentor who will help you and your new friend meet up every couple of weeks.
You will still come along to group meetings (every 6 weeks) where you will be building your confidence and speaking up. We will also be talking about good friendships and learning about Facebook and being safe.
