Down Syndrome Victoria is Victoria’s statewide peak organisation representing people with Down syndrome and their families.

Overview

Down Syndrome Victoria is Victoria’s peak organisation representing people with Down syndrome and their families.

Down Syndrome Victoria is a community based not-for-profit membership organisation established in 1978, made up of people with Down syndrome, their families, friends and professionals, all committed to achieving positive change.

We work alongside people with Down syndrome and their families so that they may reach their full potential and live the lives they choose.

We provide parents, families, professionals and friends of people with Down syndrome with support, encouragement, information and resources.

We offer:

  • Personal support for parents and other family members during pregnancy and throughout the lifespan
  • Social groups for teens and adults with Down syndrome
  • A staffed office in Abbotsford offering personal assistance and information open Monday to Thursday from 9:30am to 4:30pm
  • Training and information workshops covering a wide range of topics
  • An education support service providing support and information for teachers who have a student with Down syndrome enrolled at their school
  • A library including books and resources available to our members
  • A variety of events for our members and supporters
  • Systemic advocacy supports the full participation of people with Down syndrome in the economic and social life of the community

Please don’t hesitate to contact us on 9486 9600 or info@dsav.asn.au if you would like to speak with a member of our Family Support Team or find our more about our organisation.
