Down Syndrome Ireland

About us

Down Syndrome Ireland is a national organisation that gives up-to-date information and support to both carers and people with Down syndrome, as well as professionals working in this area. 

Down Syndrome Ireland’s goal is to improve the quality of life of persons with Down syndrome, so that each person develops to their full potential and has as bright and independent a future as possible. People experience many ups and downs throughout their lives. People with Down syndrome are no different, but may need a little help and support along the way.
