Deaf Children Australia's Partners and Supporters
Deaf Children Australia is supported by our amazing Partners, who help us to raise awareness and to inspire and empower deaf and hard of hearing children and young people to reach their full potential. Our Partners help us to achieve this vision, and together, we continue to work toward creating a better world for deaf and hard of hearing children and young people.
Through the support of our Partners, we have been able to create our range of Platypus Playhouse resources – supporting deaf and hard of hearing young people aged 0-4 to learn Auslan. Our Partners have also helped us to connect families in both Queensland and Victoria with our Parent Mentor Program, connecting families with deaf and hard of hearing children to others who share their experiences.

Deaf Children Australia is thankful for the support of the following Partners:
The Collier Charitable Fund supported our Parent Mentor Program with a specific focus on Regional Victorian families. Their grant is enabling us to provide vital one on one support to an increased number of regional Victorian families and provide opportunities for regional families to connect in person at events which helps alleviate some of the isolation experienced by both the parents and carers and children.
The Brian M Davis
The Brian M Davis Charitable Foundation has provided multi-year funding to support Deaf Children Australia’s innovative development of e-learning training and resources which will enable careers teachers and host employers to effectively support deaf and hard-of-hearing students in meaningful and successful work experience.
The Flora & Frank Leith Charitable Trust
Thank you to the Flora and Frank Leith Charitable Trust who supported our Regional Victorian Parent Mentor Program. We have been able to provide support to an increased number of regional Victorian families and encourage a strong regional network of support.
