Supporting, Advocating, Empowering

Overview

We empower people with Down syndrome to take their rightful place in their community

We build community awareness and provide support

Down Syndrome Queensland is a registered charity established by parents in 1976. Staffed by a dynamic team we provide a range of services and supports throughout Queensland. The team is supported by a team of volunteers including the Board, made up entirely of volunteer parents.

We are committed to upholding the rights of children and adults with Down syndrome and ensuring that their needs and those of their families are met. We work for a better quality of life for people with Down syndrome by supporting and strengthening families and promoting positive and realistic images of people with Down syndrome.
