Welcome to our community.

Down Syndrome NSW works to advocate for and support people with Down syndrome by providing information, resources and assistance for parents, families and carers of people with Down syndrome.  We also offer training and advocacy to professionals who may be caring for or supporting your family member.  We aim to provide support throughout all life stage - prenatal, new babies, early years, school years, adulthood and retirement - to help fulfill our vision of "achieveing our full potential."

Family Support Group

find us on facebook

Our closed Facebook group is for NSW parents and family members of children with Down syndrome, or those who are expecting a baby with Down syndrome.

Our group is mediated by DSA NSW support staff and was created to encourage peer support, information sharing and to empower families to support each other.  Please feel free to share your fears and joys, highs and lows, current information and news.

The group is open to members only.  It's easy to join and it's FREE!
