Services for 12 - 17 year olds

Our deaf/hoh mentors support young people who are deaf or hard of hearing to build self-esteem and support social inclusion. We assist young people to gain confidence to achieve their own goals and manage well being. 




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.
