Deaf Advocacy, Sports & Recreation in ACT
Established in 2010, Deaf Advocacy, Sports & Recreation ACT (DeafACT) is a not-for-profit organisation. Our mission is to:
Although much of DeafACT’s work revolves around participation in Deaf sports. DeafACT is also working hard on advocacy and recreation programs for Deaf and HoH people. Examples of this include lobbying for open captioned cinema, hosting NDIS information sessions, and the provision of Auslan workshops for families who have deaf or HoH children and more. We also aim to foster a connected Deaf and HoH community through our Deaf Seniors ACT Group and promoting Canberra Deaf Club gatherings.
