Deaf Services 

In October 2020 Deaf Services Limited and the Deaf Society merged to form Australia’s largest whole-of-life service provider for the Deaf, deafblind and hard of hearing communities across all age groups in Australia. 

About Us

With a shared vision of individuals and community empowered, connected and achieving, Deaf Services and Deaf Society deliver programs and supports to enable the Deaf community to live full and independent lives. We also work with all Australians to create a more inclusive and accessible community through information referrals, advocacy and education.

With shared history, vision and strengths, as well as over 200 years of proven community support, Deaf Services and the Deaf Society stands with the Deaf community - delivering services across the east coast as well as Auslan interpreting and advocacy services nationally. 

This is an exciting time for our organisation as we enter a period of dynamic growth. Deaf Services is expanding its programs and services and continuing to deliver for the community as a registered service provider under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), and an approved provider of home care services for seniors.
