Southern Stars Campaign

The NZDSA was established 41 years ago as a charitable organisation.  The NZDSA receives no government funding so the donations we receive from this annual telephone fundraising campaign will enable the NZDSA to raise awareness, to support its ongoing work and to funded three specific projects described below.   This telephone campaign will run from the 11th July to the 26th August 2022

This year our annual appeal is for three critical projects:

  • The first is to host our annual Youth Development Camp at Vaughan Park Retreat Centre and MERC, Long Bay, Auckland in November 2022. This camp will focus on building self-esteem, well-being, gaining independence and confidence, as well as some activities like rock climbing, archery and abseiling. 
  •  The second is to publish and distribute our quarterly journal called CHAT 21.
  • The third is the vital information, support service that the NZDSA provides to people with Down syndrome, their whānau and professionals.

We would like to extend our thanks to Southern Stars, a registered charity working to raise funds on behalf of the NZDSA.
