Our Values

Our values express what we stand for and guide the way we do things.  Our values are core to our business, and we align everything we do with them.  Here at DSQ, we have three core values.


We remain true to our Mission and are honest, open, ethical, and fair. We take accountability for our actions and our actions match our words.

We know it takes people with different ideas, strengths, interests, and backgrounds to succeed.  We collaborate to leverage collective knowledge.

As a values-based organisation we know that we will not achieve our strategy unless we get our values right.  Putting these values into action will help us to build community awareness and to support, advocate for and empower people with Down syndrome.
