Our purpose is to represent and promote the interests and well-being of people who are Deaf or Hearing Impaired, have a chronic ear or a balance disorder.
We aim to be the trusted, independent adviser to the federal government and opposition with authority to speak on matters of relevance and importance to the national deafness and hearing impaired sector. Our approach is to provide clear and actionable advice to all parts of the political spectrum.
There are two parts to our representational work on behalf of our members and the broader sector.
These statements, sometimes called policies, reflect our members' views on the issues that are of a long-term nature. They are the entrenched systemic problems encountered by people with hearing disability. Review our Position statements
