IST Supports DSA Workfit Programme

IST Supports Down's Syndrome Assoc. Workfit Programme

Established in 1970, the DSA strives to improve lives of people with Down’s syndrome and raise awareness of the condition and significant advances have been made in the lives of people with Down’s syndrome and their families in recent years.

The DSA has introduced a WorkFit programme which helps people with Down’s syndrome into employment by providing support and training for employers and employees. The IST fully supports this initiative and is exploring ways in which it can help.
