We are honoured to be patrons of the Congress. The Congress allows families to come together, share experiences and learn. Bringing together research, personal and global insights, the Congress shines a light on emerging developments, health and achievement, as well as opportunity for our community. Down Syndrome knowledge is a bell curve that keeps on giving, challenging and surprising.

Why Congress patronage?

Our community emerged from eras and eras of low expectation into a modern complex world full of opportunity and barriers to be broken down. This is the highest achieving moment in Down Syndrome history. There is so much more to come; you can’t miss it.
