We are proud of what we do at Deaf Services and we aim to meet the community’s needs. This is driven by our Strategic Plan, our quality systems, a focus on staff learning and development and structuring the organisation to be responsive to these needs.
We will always remain a resource for Deaf and hearing people, providing opportunities for the community to become empowered, connected and achieving.
Our current Strategic Plan has come to an end and we are ready to embark on new directions as an organisation. Over the last five years, we have introduced three new service streams strengthening our position and future. Moving forward, we will focus on standing with and building the capacity of the Deaf community. This is coupled with a continued focus on innovation, growth and ensuring we have the right culture and capabilities to deliver on our services.
Deaf Services is an amazing organisation with highly skilled staff, volunteers and Board members. I would like to personally thank you all for your continued work in making us a successful organisation, where the community know they can receive services with confidence and ease. To our supporters, your contribution is what makes us an evolving and dynamic organisation. To the Deaf community, it is a pleasure to work alongside you to enhance outcomes and raise the profile of Deaf people in Australia. In doing so, thank you for entrusting us to be part of your lives.
