Supporting, Advocating, Empowering

People with an Intellectual Disability deserve the same opportunities and dreams as everyone else. They long for a bright beginning, quality education, fulfilling work, genuine friendships, a place to call home, and active involvement in their community.

At Down Syndrome Queensland (DSQ), our team is driven by a deep commitment to ensuring that individuals with intellectual disability, their families, and their communities feel a strong sense of connection and support throughout their lives, regardless of their location in Queensland. We strive to provide vital information, unwavering support, and relentless advocacy.

DSQ acts as a bridge, linking individuals with Intellectual Disability, their families, employers, and service providers to valuable resources and assistance. We empower individuals with Intellectual Disability to pursue meaningful paths in life by offering guidance, sourcing supports, and equipping them with the tools they need.
