About Down Syndrome WA

Down Syndrome Western Australia was established in 1986 by a small group of families who had a baby or young child with Down syndrome and who were looking for mutual support and information.

Our staff is skilled at managing events, projects, grant outcomes and acquittals on time and within budget.

Down Syndrome WA is highly regarded in the WA disability sector for its specialist expertise and its focus on developing community inclusion.

We are the official voice for the Down syndrome community in WA and we work to represent the needs of people with Down syndrome and their families to government and within the community. 

We do this by working to influence public policies, assist in bringing about change, and improving opportunities for people with Down syndrome. Together as members of Down Syndrome Australia we advocate with one strong and united voice for people with Down syndrome.
