ACT Deafness Resource CenterA community not for profit organisation
The ACT Deafness Resource Centre is a community organisation providing information, linkages and capacity building for the hearing impaired, deaf and those with chronic disorders of the ear. We offer support to the broader ACT community
The DRC aims to provide a service to all people with a hearing impairment, deafness or chronic disorder of the ear in the ACT and surrounding hinterland.We hope to improve the effect of hearing loss on their everyday lives, by providing information, advice, guidance and personalised assistance, with our drop-in and advocacy services helping to break down the barriers of communication. A key goal is to ensure everyone receives equal access to services and opportunities which enable deaf and hearing impaired people to live independently within the community.
