There are many ways to support us so that we can continue our work.

Volunteer

We value the part that volunteers play at our events and their involvement in our programs. Volunteers help build skills and confidence in people with Down syndrome they connect with in a natural and inclusive way and share their friendship and enthusiasm.

Contact us to discuss current volunteering opportunities.

Sponsorship

We have funded all our operations for 30 years without the help of any ongoing government funding!

Our funds come from membership fees, fundraising events, grants and sponsorship. Some of our projects are only made possible through ongoing sponsorship such as:

  • Family support services
  • Information resources
  • Social connections for all age groups
  • Education support
  • National events such as Step UP!

Let’s work together to create opportunities of support and connection for our community.
