Access To Community/ Communication Support
Social inclusion of young people is important for expanding peer support networks through sport, arts, recreation, camp and other community based activities. We can help you link up with these networks and support you at the events.
Our new online mentoring program provides a fun and engaging way for students aged 12-15 years to build their confidence and social connections in a supportive environment. Participants will develop skills in self-advocacy, learn how to manage challenges, build lasting friendships with peers and create stronger connections to the deaf community.
Our mentors have lived experience and are passionate about helping young people.
Exclusively for everyone who has done a Get Connected course. Stay Connected is held after each Get Connected course. You'll catch up and reconnect with your Get Connected course mates. You'll also build on what you have learnt and connect with your friends again!
