JOIN LDSA

LDSA membership is open to all families that include a member with Down syndrome, and that are currently living in London and surrounding areas (Elgin, Huron, Middlesex, Oxford and Perth Counties). Members of the LDSA community are invited to participate in the programs and services we offer, to apply for therapy bursaries, and take part in our educational and social events. We always look forward to welcoming new families to the LDSA!

If you would like to hold an event to fundraise for LDSA, we want to support you in this effort! Community events could be (but are not limited to): garage sales, car washes, Boston Pizza meal nights, lemonade stands, and home sales, such as Tupperware or Pampered Chef.
