Members and friends of Deafness Forum of Australia are invited to attend the Annual General Meeting.  If you are in Sydney at the time, we would very much enjoy meeting you in person to present an overview of our financial performance and highlights for the previous year; and to put to our members any matters that require their approval.  We can also give you an update on our current advocacy work including the Break The Sound Barrier campaign to make Hearing Health & Well-being the next National Health Priority in Australia.  Hearing loop, real time captions, Auslan interpreting and light refreshments will be provided.

Contact the company secretary Stephen Williamson, info@deafnessforum.org.au

Break the Sound Barrier is uniting our entire sector for a common cause - to make hearing a national priority.

Hearing is not one of Australia’s national health priorities.  It means there we do not have the adequate investment in services and research we need. It also means there is not a focus on community education. It’s a barrier that is preventing too many Australians from reaching their potential.

The campaign has a new website and Facebook page and even a video.  Its aim is to tell our stories and share our experiences to get hearing on the national agenda.  The long term goal is for state and the federal governments agreeing to make hearing Australia’s 10th national health priority.

We’ve already started to be heard in the media and this is only the beginning.  Be part of the movement to Break the Sound Barrier!  Now it’s time to tell everyone why you are a supporter.  Be part of the movement.

Tenille, Hamish and Angus want to break the sound barrier.
