Welcome to




Portsmouth DSA: Championing Inclusion

We are committed to improving the lives of children and families in Portsmouth, Hampshire and beyond. 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 Sarah Duffen Centre in Belmont Street. 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.
