Down Syndrome NSW is a community based, not-for-profit association established by the families of people with Down syndrome in 1980.  We provide support and information to people with Down syndrome and their families, service providers and the wider community, through a range of activities.
 
Down Syndrome NSW is an independent, registered charity established and run by parents. The work of Down Syndrome NSW depends on the generosity of its members and the general public in supporting its fundraising efforts and through donations. Annual funding from the State Government through the Department of Ageing, Disability and Home Care assists in meeting administrative costs.
 
Down Syndrome NSW encourages people with Down syndrome to fulfil their potential for successful and happy lives, in a society which knows their abilities and is supportive of their needs. We represent the interests and respond to the needs of people with Down syndrome in the major aspects of their lives; as members of the family, in their individual pursuits, and as members of the community. We want all people with Down syndrome to reach their full potential as individuals and citizens within the wider community in NSW and Australia.
 
Down Syndrome NSW has made its mission to support and promote the interests of all people with Down syndrome, their families and carers in NSW. We will work to improve the quality of life of people with Down syndrome by empowering and enabling our membership and supporters through:
 
  • Contact support for families and carers of individuals of all ages with Down syndrome.
  • Generating and disseminating information to our membership, professionals and the community at large.
  • Creating and promoting innovative programmes which further the development of individuals with Down syndrome.
  • Raising positive public awareness about Down syndrome.
  • Promoting equal rights for people with Down syndrome both individually and collectively. Contributing to the shaping of Government policy and service provision.
  • Representing the interest of our constituency in local state and national forums.
  • Encouraging and assisting research initiatives into issues relating to Down syndrome.
  • Raising funds for the above purposes
