ACT Deafness Resource CenterA community not for profit organisation
The ACT Deafness Resource Centre (the DRC), is a community organisation funded by the Commonwealth, to provide information, linkages and capacity building for the hearing impaired, deaf and those with chronic ear disorders. We offer support to the broader ACT community and the surrounding regions of NSW that have come to rely on the ACT for services.
We aim to help manage the effects of hearing loss on everyday life by providing information, advice and guidance.We do this through our Drop-in and advocacy services to help break down barriers to communication. A key objective is to ensure everyone receives equal access to services and opportunities, which will enable deaf and hearing impaired people to live independently within the community.
