Down Syndrome International (DSi) is a UK based international charity committed to improving quality of life for people with Down syndrome worldwide. We:

  • Provide information, support and resources to people with Down syndrome, their families and carers, and the professionals who work with them with specific focus on developing countries. 
  • Represent people with Down syndrome with a single global voice and encourage international communication and cooperation. 
  • Raise awareness about Down syndrome and the potential of people with Down syndrome to be valued members of their communities.

Our projects and campaigns include:

  • working in developing countries, building the capacity of small non-profit organisations to advocate for a better life for people with Down syndrome;
  • publishing accurate, evidence based and internationally recognised guidance on different aspects of living with Down syndrome, to ensure people with Down syndrome are given support and opportunities;
  • World Down Syndrome Day, a day dedicated to people with Down syndrome and those who live and work with them;
  • World Down Syndrome Congress, a global meeting point for sharing best practices and 
  • international advocacy - speaking up for people with Down syndrome at the international political level at the UN, to make sure the rights and fundamental freedoms people with Down syndrome share with us all, are enjoyed.
