Welcome to Deafblind Australia

Listen to this article

We represent and advocate for Deafblind people around the country. We are committed to diversity, inclusiveness, self-determination and advocacy.

We work to improve supports and services and to empower Deafblind people to be self-determining and self-advocating.

Our aim is for the Deafblind community and its members to thrive. With the right supports and services, Deafblind people can and do achieve their goals.

Our website keeps you up to date with the latest news and events, and can help you access resources, support and services.

We warmly invite anyone impacted by hearing loss and vision impairment, including people with dual sensory loss and people who identify as Deafblind, along with their families and support networks and professionals working in this space to join our community.
