Update from the Founder

We are excited to share some recent updates at the Inclusion Foundation.

The Inclusion Foundation remains committed to creating a more inclusive society for people with Down syndrome. This mission is at the core of everything we do. This is an important time for the Inclusion Foundation as we continue to promote our suite of programs of emotion21 and Impact21. These programs are making a real impact and changing attitudes in the community, and we are committed to ensuring they reach as many people as possible.

After three years of service, Luke Sayers AM will pass the baton to Laura Green to Chair the Inclusion Foundation.

Laura Green brings over 20 years of professional experience in the disability sector spanning front line services, government, consulting and executive leadership. As an industry leader, Laura is known for working collaboratively to achieve a positive impact. Laura first volunteered in the promotion of social participation and inclusion of people with Down syndrome in the ACT, which was recognised with the Alderson Award in 2007.  She is thrilled to bring this experience and long-term commitment to the role of Chair at Inclusion Foundation. Laura will lead with commitment to creating a more inclusive society for people with Down syndrome and enhancing collaboration with our wide range of supporters.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Luke for his dedication and commitment to the Inclusion Foundation, and we are pleased to confirm that he will remain on our Board.

At the Inclusion Foundation, we believe that everyone deserves to be included and valued, and we are grateful for your continued support in helping us achieve this goal.
