Serving our community. Sharing our culture.
Deaf Connect is committed to the Deaf community* with a range of supports nationally including interpreting services, individual supports, aged care, early intervention, therapy and family services and information and referral services.
We are the largest employer of Deaf and hard of hearing people in Australia, a registered provider under the National Disability Insurance Scheme and an approved provider of in-home care for seniors. Deaf Connect is the country’s largest Auslan interpreting agency, and provides training in sign language and interpreting through our RTO (RTO Provider Number 41192).
*Our Deaf community includes Deaf, deafblind and hard of hearing Australians, their families and the allies who support them.
Deaf Connect was born through the coming together of Deaf societies and organisations across Australia, and the merging of shared histories and experiences nationwide.
Our brand is representative of the intersectionality of the Deaf community. Each circle – each with a unique shape – can be representative of a sub-group of Deafness in Australia. Whether our differences are defined by history, location, modality, personality or anything else – together we form the Deaf community; symbolised by implied centre circle. We are all connected.
As Australia’s largest Deaf organisation, we will continue to build capacity and influence social change.
Deaf Connect will continue to work with all levels of Government and private business as a strong voice for equality.
We aim to empower local Deaf communities and individuals – promoting the ongoing success of the Deaf ecosystem and supporting each to shine within the community.
Our work will continue to be supported by our partnerships, including our Memorandum of Understanding with Gallaudet University, as well as relationship with Deaf communities and organisations in Australia and internationally.
