Ups and Downs Southwest seeks to promote positive images of children with Down Syndrome to help address the unfortunate stereotypical images that so many people still associate with the condition.
Positive images instil higher hopes and expectations and bring with them a brighter vision of the future and so are completely invaluable when working with both new parents and professionals.
We have built up an extensive and very comprehensive library of images for use in presentations, literature, publicity etc and believe that they play a huge part in promoting positive images of Down Syndrome to the general public as well as to all those already involved with the condition in one form or another.
We would encourage anyone and everyone to look through our picture galleries and be amazed and enthralled by just a small selection of pictures of our beautiful children (not that we’re biased at all you understand!)

All photos appear here by kind permission of the families and Mike O’Carroll, our very own photographer, who has worked tirelessly to continue producing beautiful images of our children; a job which he says is not difficult as he finds it very easy to take captivating photographs of children who have Down Syndrome!
