The Vancouver Island Down Syndrome Society (VIDSS) was established in 2019 by a group of concerned parents who wanted to ensure support networks are set up for individuals with Down syndrome.
The mission of the Vancouver Island Down Syndrome Society is to provide support, information and opportunities for children and adults with Down Syndrome, and their parents, sibblings, and professionals.
We strive to:
Be a support for parents, caregivers, and families of children and adults with Down syndrome.
Develop support services and projects which benefit individuals with Down syndrome.
Provide a platform for people with Down syndrome to self advocate.
Develop educational and work place opportunities for people with Down syndrome.
Enhance public awareness and understanding of Down syndrome.
