Robb Foundation

Membership Benefits

The strength of our network and our ability to represent the global Down syndrome community is enhanced by the commitment and support of our members. We could not do the work we do without our members.

Membership will give you opportunities to take part in our work, events and activities. Crucially, by joining you will be supporting us to be the global voice, advocating for the rights of people with Down syndrome.

If you are an individual…

Whether you are a person with Down syndrome, a family member or associate, a professional, researcher or if you simply have an interest in Down syndrome, you can join robbfoundation.


If you are an organisation…

We encourage other Down syndrome or disability advocacy groups and those who focus on specific issues like healthcare, education, employment or other service provision, to apply to join robbfoundation as affiliate members.
