The SUPPORT ORGANISATION FOR TRISOMY (S.O.F.T.) is a voluntary group dedicated to providing support, assistance and information for families of children diagnosed and born with Patau’s

Syndrome (Trisomy 13) and Edwards’ Syndrome (Trisomy 18) in Ireland. Babies born with these syndromes often have serious life-threatening conditions with developmental delay and a limited life expectancy. Support is provided during pre-natal diagnosis, during the child’s life and after the child’s passing. For families with surviving children, we contribute towards home and family support which includes therapy sessions and respite assistance.  We give assistance to bereaved families to attend family days and an annual conference which allows them to meet with other families, share experiences and provide emotional and practical support to each other.
