Southern Stars Campaign

The NZDSA was established 42 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 fund three specific projects described below. This telephone campaign will run from the 11th September to the 27th October 2023.

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 24-26th November 2023. 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. Those attending will come from throughout NZ.
  • The second is the vital information, support and advocacy service that the NZDSA provides to people with Down syndrome, their whānau and professionals.
  • The third is to publish and distribute our quarterly journal called CHAT 21.

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