Advocacy – Deaf Aotearoa

About Advocacy – Deaf Aotearoa

At a local level, Deaf Aotearoa staff advocate daily for service users’ rights to access the services and support they need and want, and for their local Deaf communities to access what they need and want. Examples include advocating for Deaf employees when there has been a breakdown in communication that could cause a Deaf person to lose their job; or working with local Work and Income offices to ensure NZSL interpreting services are provided for Deaf people’s appointments.
