The Down Syndrome Association of WA (Inc) believes that people with Down Syndrome have the right to be respected as valued members of society with their own level of independence, self determination, and a sense of belonging to the community. This can be achieved best by having access to appropriate services and support along the way.
WA Charity Direct has provided funding to assist with the opening of the Support Centre and Helpline five days per week and also extended the follow up and support for families of newly diagnosed babies. This help has also extended and increased the community outreach and training to include staff of accommodation support, therapy, respite and recreation services who work with children and adults with Down Syndrome.
