Welcome to the “UPP Club” website!

New Zealand UPP Club is a peer support club for children, teenagers and young adults who have Down Syndrome. UPP Club is managed by the New Zealand UPP Education Trust.

UPP Club run programmes in both the Canterbury and Dunedin regions. UPP Club Dunedin is a new addition to our program and meet fortnightly on a Friday evening. UPP Club Canterbury runs three groups with main meetings occurring on Friday nights fortnightly but events are happening every week for the older groups.

Our programmes cater for individuals with Down Syndrome from age 8 years and up. Groups are organised by age with Step UPP for those 8-12 years, Junior UPP Club for those 13-17 years and Senior UPP Club for those 18+ years. For UPP Club Dunedin all members attend the same group.

New Zealand UPP Club has been running in Canterbury for over 9 years and we now have over 90 members. With Dunedin continuing to grow we look forward to being a strong presence in both the Christchurch and Dunedin communities in years to come.
