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.
Every year we need to raise up to 88% of our €3.7 million costs to enable us to continue providing these essential services. With only approximately 12% 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.
