Down's Syndrome Association Donation
The Down’s Syndrome Association (DSA) is the only charity in the UK dealing with all aspects of Down’s syndrome. Our aim is to help people with Down’s syndrome live full and rewarding lives.
Since 1970, we have grown from being a local parent support group into a national charity with over 20,000 members, a national office in Teddington, Middlesex and an office in Northern Ireland.
Despite this, the organisation is run by a total staff of just over 40 (many of them part time).
We have a number of wide ranging objectives;
- Providing information about all aspects of living with Down’s syndrome including specialist advisers on benefits, education, health and social care.
- Giving people with Down’s syndrome a platform to have their say and be heard.
- Finding the right employment opportunities for people who have Down’s syndrome and ensuring that they have the support they need to be successful in the workplace.
- Providing as many opportunities as possible for people with Down’s syndrome to lead active and healthy lives.
We rely almost entirely on voluntary donations and by donating you will help us to continue to create the conditions that all people with Down’s syndrome need to live full and rewarding lives.
