The Deaf Society announces its intention to merge with Deaf Services Limited

The Deaf Society would like to share some exciting news about our organisation. The Deaf Society has announced its intention to merge with Deaf Services Limited, a deaf services organisation based in Queensland. The new organisation will be Australia’s largest whole-of-life specialist provider of services to deaf and hard of hearing people.

This merge is because the Deaf Society and Deaf Services are natural partners – we have the same vision and values, and serve the same community. This merge will see our service provision and advocacy grow and strengthen over time, delivering positive outcomes for all Deaf Australians. Together, we look forward to achieving great things for deaf and hard of hearing people and their families. 

You do not need to take any action. We will continue providing services to you just as usual. 

You may notice some small changes to our systems and billing in the coming months but we will advise of this in advance.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions at all.

Kind regards,

Leonie Jackson
Chief Executive Officer
