Our strategic plan

Our strategic plan is reviewed by our board and members every three years. Our current focus is:

  • Drive quality of life: Highlight systemic injustices and drive reform through systemic advocacy based on the UNCRPD.
  • Strengthen the Down syndrome community: Strengthen the Down syndrome community by providing information, support for self-advocacy, and capacity building opportunities.
  • Lead change in community attitudes: Drive awareness, and inclusion through community awareness campaigns and joint initiatives with allies.
  • Build capacity and collaboration among members: Share resources, develop partnerships and support professional practice development.
