From 1 July 2015, Deaf Australia is no longer receiving funding from the Australian Government to advocate for deaf people and communities.
Although we will continue to fight for deaf rights as much as we can, we are now relying on memberships, donations, and fundraising, so we are not able to deliver the same level of support and advocacy work in the future.
The funding that Deaf Australia used to receive is now supporting five broad disability advocacy organisations. We encourage you to contact them to let them know your needs as deaf people and tell them about any discrimination you are facing.
You can contact them directly, or if you would like us to assist you in contacting them, please email us. Alternatively, you can email them directly and CC us.
