Pathways for Deaf Migrants

Home » Current Projects » Pathways for Deaf Migrants

In 2017, deafConnectEd was successful in an application to the Victorian Government for funding to support recent migrants to Australia who are Deaf. This funding allowed us to deliver a course tailored specifically to the needs of this group, including Auslan and English skill development to support learners in accessing services and taking up opportunities for further study and employment.

We were grateful to the Victorian Government Department of Premier and Cabinet (Capacity Building and Participation Program) for the funding that made this innovative activity possible and to our partnership with Expression Australia.

In 2023, we continue to work with Expression Australia with the aim of creating a sustainable pathway for Deaf migrants.
