Deaf Connect empowers our community nationally – unlocking access and enabling Deaf, deafblind and hard of hearing Australians to make choices and actions to thrive in life. Through our advocacy agenda we aim to improve equity for the Deaf community, and to remove systemic cultural and language barriers.

As Australia’s largest Deaf-led organisation, we acknowledge and celebrate the history and culture of our community. Standing with the Deaf community we will continue to build capacity and influence social change as a strong voice for equality.

Most importantly, Deaf Connect is a not-for-profit, meaning all profits are invested back into programs and support that directly benefits the Deaf community.
