We have improved the way we deliver our services, with the launch of DCA Plus.
There will be no changes to how we deliver the services you need. Our key services for young people will remain. The mentors will continue to support people who are deaf, hard of hearing and/or that have a disability. The mentors together with programs we have created to help build self-esteem and support social inclusion will continue.
The team at DCA Plus is improving programs like Get Connected, StepUp2HighSchool and Ready Set Drive to support better educational outcomes and employment opportunities.

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.
