All across Australia, your local Down syndrome organisations have fully trained Family Support staff who are there for our members and the community. The state & territory organisations offer support to families covering all stages of life but here we take a look at the resources available to new parents and families with a child under 18.

“When a new baby with Down syndrome is born, I can visit the family either in hospital or at home depending on what the parents would like. I have visited a family on the day their child was born in hospital, as they really wanted to talk and have the New Parent Pack that day.”
