Need for support
Down Syndrome Ireland is the voice of people with Down syndrome and their families throughout Ireland. We provide a wide range of vital services and supports including: Early Intervention, Speech & Language Therapy, Health, Education, Personal Development and Employment Opportunities that enhance the lives of thousands of children and adults with Down syndrome – like Christopher and Conor pictured below.
Every year we need to raise up to 85% of our €3.5 million costs to enable us to continue providing these essential services. With only approximately 15% State funding, we are very heavily reliant on public fundraising and the generosity of people like you! *
There are many ways you, your family, your workplace or your school/college can help. By making a once-off or monthly donation, participating in one of our events, organising an event of your own or taking on a challenge/marathon. By doing so you will help raise much needed funds that will enable us to provide essential services for people like Christopher and Conor with Down syndrome, and their families.
