PROGRAMS & SERVICES divider

The DRC aims to provide a service to all people with a hearing impairment, deafness or chronic disorder of the ear in the ACT and surrounding hinterland.We hope to improve the effect of hearing loss on their everyday lives, by providing  information, advice, guidance and personalised assistance, with our drop-in  and advocacy services helping to break down the barriers of communication. A key goal is to ensure everyone receives equal access to services and opportunities which enable deaf and hearing impaired people to live independently within the community.
