We're the national voice for Down syndrome
Down Syndrome Australia is made up of eight State and Territory associations providing support, information and resources to people with Down syndrome and their families across the country. The associations have come together to represent and progress the needs, interests and aspirations of people with Down syndrome and those that support them.
Membership of your State or Territory Association provides much-needed funds and links you in with the latest information and resources – and especially the vibrant community of people with Down syndrome, their families and supporters.
Make sure you head to your local state or territory website for information local to your area!
