Support for Migrants

Imagine arriving in Australia without a written or spoken language, how would you navigate life? How would you know the laws and values of this country? Where would you get support?

These are just some of the reported experiences of deaf migrants arriving in Australia. To support deaf migrants with adjusting to life in Australia, we have created a video and brochure which explain the laws and values of Australian society, as well as, general information about specialist services available to deaf migrants.

To cater to the variety of language needs, the brochure is highly visual with simple English text and the video is delivered using predominantly gesture (and English captions).

If you or someone you know would benefit from support from a deaf specialist, please feel free to contact us.

Funding for these resources has been provided by the NSW Government through Multicultural NSW.
