Portsmouth DSA: Championing Inclusion

Portsmouth DSA is an award-winning charity committed to improving the lives of children and families. We know our young people can succeed when given the opportunity and with the right support, and we believe they deserve the same opportunities and right to experience success as their peers. Portsmouth DSA provides a range of some of the best specialist services in the UK supporting development and education and offers training to assist families and professionals in providing effective support from the point of diagnosis, helping to teach children the skills they need to reach their developmental milestones, succeed at school, and become valued and productive members of their communities.  When children with Down syndrome are given opportunities to participate and be fully included, the whole community benefits.

We are based at the Unit 1 Aspen House in Portsmouth. Please contact us if you would like to find out more about what we do, or if you would like to come along to meet us.

Royal Approval

Portsmouth DSA is proud to have been honoured by Her Majesty the Queen with the Queen’s Award in recognition of outstanding service to our community.

Sir @LiamFox MP is doing great work to stop discrimination against those with #Downsyndrome, I encourage all disability charities to get behind this ...endeavour for legal equality before birth #TimeToMoveOn

We stand for change in a world where twins can share everything but equality. After 24 weeks, both twins should have equal protection. But if one ...twin has Down syndrome, they're not given the same rights. This is discrimination.
It's time for the law to recognise #EqualityAt24.
