Down Syndrome WA

StepUP! #21YourWay in Western Australia this October

Every October we StepUP! to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month. This is a time to celebrate, recognise and promote the diversity and achievements of people with Down syndrome. 

Funds raised via StepUP! allow Down Syndrome WA to 'Support a Life of Possibilities' for our members living with Down syndrome, their families, carers and wider network.

We advocate on behalf of our members and deliver services, programs and support, ensuring individuals attain their goals and live a meaningful life of their choice.
