Removing Barriers and Helping to Hear

February 20th, 2018

Aiming to provide children and young people who are deaf or hard of hearing, and their families, with the opportu­nities and skills to face life’s challenges, Deaf Children Aus­tralia (DCA) encourages them to celebrate their potential.

DCA provides a range of services to families with deaf and hard of hearing children, and were a proud recipient of a $4000 grant as part of the 2017 Community Grants Pro­gram.

Since receiving the grant, DCA has used the $4,000 grant to assist with funding towards the ‘Time Out Family Camp’ for families with deaf children, which has been unable to run since 2014 due to insufficient funding;

“DCA is extremely grateful for the generous support of $4,000 we received in 2017 from Kedron-Wavell. With their support, we ran a highly successful Family Day Camp – the first of its kind in Queensland! DCA will be holding more of these camps in the future – we have one planned for March 2018! We thank Kedron-Wavell for their fantastic support and look forward to a continuing relationship into the fu­ture.”
