About Down Syndrome NSW

Down Syndrome NSW was established in 1980 by parents of young people with Down syndrome. As the children of the founding members grew into adolescence and adulthood, so too our services extended to all life stages.

We now provide information and support, advocacy,
capacity building workshops, training in schools, community participation programs, pre-natal expert advice, new parent resources and support and specialist employment preparation and connection.

We work to support all people with Down syndrome to achieve their full potential in all life stages and champion the rights of people with Down syndrome to be valued and to take their rightful place in the community.
