Who We Are
Deaf Children Australia is a non-for-profit organisation that supports deaf and hard of hearing children, young people and their families to remove barriers to their personal development and social inclusion.
Deaf Children Australia provides a range of services to families with deaf and hard of hearing children. These services help families build confidence and connections with others in the community.
We work to promote opportunities for families and children to:
- Access unbiased information,
- Get connected with each other,
- Participate in peer to peer support,
- Access community, recreational and youth activities,
- Develop skills in advocacy, relationship building
We support all forms of communication and believe in equal opportunities for all.
To provide the support, advice, options, and unbiased information families need to raise engaged, connected, and resilient deaf and hard of hearing young Australians.
To create a world where children and young people who are deaf or hard of hearing have every opportunity to reach their full potential.
DCA respects and promotes the rights of deaf and hard of hearing children and young people, and supports them, their family members and all those around them to make informed choices and enable them to fully participate in the community at all stages of their lives.
We are primarily accountable to deaf and hard of hearing children, young people and their families for our decisions and actions, and also accountable to our stakeholders. DCA strives to act with integrity and transparency at all times.
DCA is committed to addressing the disadvantage experienced by deaf and hard of hearing children and young people. DCA’s goal is to create partnerships that assist in achieving our vision and providing the best possible support for children, young people and their families.
DCA is a collaborative, diverse and inclusive organisation. We strive to base our work on evidence, empowering deaf and hard of hearing children and young people. DCA seeks contemporary approaches to providing unbiased support, whilst at the same time advancing knowledge and skills in the field.
