About Us

Operating since 1903, Deaf Services Queensland is the leading provider of support services and information to the Deaf and hard of hearing community in Queensland.

With a vision of Deaf people empowered, connected and achieving, all the services and programs provided by Deaf Services Queensland aim to enable the community to live full and independent lives.  Deaf Services Queensland has been providing information, referral, advocacy, aged care, independent living skills support, community education and employment support to the Deaf community in Queensland for over 106 years.

Some of the key services and programs Deaf Services Queensland provides are:

• Auslan Interpreting
• Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Interpreting
• Auslan Translations
• Employment Support Services
• Australian Sign Language (Auslan) Classes
• Information and Referral
• Independent Living Support
• Deafness Awareness Training
• Children and Families Support

All of these services sit at the core of Deaf Services Queensland and aim to assist the Deaf and hard of hearing community and provide a connection between the Deaf and hearing communities. 

Being a small not-for-profit organisation, we rely heavily on the generosity of the community. Without consistent funding and donations, a lot of the programs and services we provide would not be sustainable in the long term. All donations, whether big or small, are greatly appreciated and go toward continually increasing our capacity to provide these important services to the Deaf and hearing impaired communities of Queensland
