Deaf Ecosystem

There are many organisations and businesses that are part of the New Zealand Deaf Ecosystem. Here you will find contact details such as email addresses or social media contacts for these organisations and businesses so that you may be able to connect with them directly. Some of these organisations and businesses have their own regular communications so we encourage you to subscribe to them and keep up to date with their news.

The following content on Deaf Aotearoa’s Deaf Ecosystem webpage is provided for convenience and to share information about the various external organisations, groups, businesses and professionals who function in the Deaf community. However, Deaf Aotearoa does not accept any liability for the accuracy or content of third party information or services, and the inclusion of an organisation/group/business/professional here does not automatically constitute Deaf Aotearoa endorsement.
