Support, share, shine

Shine 21 is a charity that’s dedicated to enhancing the lives of children with Down’s Syndrome and passionate about supporting their families.


We help by providing:

  • regular development sessions with a trained speech and language therapist, and physiotherapy/Occupational Therapy and personal needs support – as well as lots of fun play activities!

  • a resources library with access to books and equipment to support your child’s development, removing a financial burden from families

  • support for parents and expectant families with relevant and up-to-date information – and help with any decisions they may face.

  • Support families learn Makaton by funding their Level 1 training. 


Support for families based in North Yorkshire

Shine21 is run by parents of children with Down’s Syndrome. We are based in North Yorkshire and can currently offer support for children aged 5 and under. 


We also strive to raise awareness of Down’s Syndrome and ensure our children are treated fairly and equally in day-to-day life.
