About Deaf Connect
We are proud to be Australia’s largest whole-of-life service provider for the Deaf, hard of hearing and deafblind communities.
In October 2020, Deaf Services Limited and the Deaf Society merged. With shared history, vision and strengths, we stand with the Deaf community, delivering services in Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia, the Australian Capital Territory, and the Northern Territory, with Auslan interpreting services delivered nationally.
Our focus is on community and empowerment, supporting Deaf Australians and their families to make choices and actions to thrive in life, while delivering on a national agenda to improve equity for the Deaf community, and to remove systemic cultural and language barriers.
