Overview

We work to support all people with Down syndrome to achieve their full potential in all life stages. 
We champion the rights of people with Down syndrome to be valued and to take their rightful place in the community.

About Us

The Down Syndrome Association of NSW was established in 1980 by parents of young people with Down syndrome. As the children of the founding members grew to adolescence and adulthood, our services extended to all life stages.

We are an enthusiastic team of professionals with expertise in our relevant fields of service provision.  Some of us have lived experience with a family member with Down syndrome.  We are here to support you – all working together to help our members with Down syndrome achieve their full potential.

Down Syndrome NSW currently only accepts membership via phone 9841 4444 or email. Once we receive your request, it will be presented to the board for approval. Membership is free and you can find out more here
