About Us

Our Purpose

To change how the world views and values people with Down syndrome.

We see an inclusive world where people with Down syndrome are equal, active and respected members of society.

We support our vision through four key pillars:

ENGAGEMENT

We champion inclusion with the amazing and generous support of volunteers, local and national businesses. Come young, come old, come with knowledge, passion, a sense of fun and a genuine desire to make a difference in the lives of people with Down syndrome and their families.

EMPOWERMENT

We set positive expectations for people with Down syndrome — and positively redefine those of society. Our initiatives and programs promote social inclusion, facilitate greater independence and empower people with Down syndrome to be all they can be.

EDUCATION 

We provide ongoing learning for people with Down syndrome that elevates and inspires them to do more, be more and achieve more.

We use education to positivity challenge and change societal perceptions of Down syndrome.

ENERGY

Inclusion is a goal that requires energy, positivity and passion from those with Down syndrome and those close to them. People with Down syndrome can fill a room with their infectious spirit and zest for life – traits that run through every aspect of our organisation.
