About Down Syndrome Australia

Down Syndrome Australia is the national peak organisation for people living with Down syndrome and their families.

People with Down syndrome are at the centre of all the work that we do. We work to create change in social and public policy. 

We want to make sure people understand the experiences of people with Down syndrome and their families. All our work is informed by the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. We work together with state and territory organisations to achieve our vision.

We are committed to achieving our vision through demonstrating our values of:

Four blue circles with the four DSA values: Inclusion, Collaboration, Trust, Respect
