Deaf Aotearoa employs over 60 staff in 14 offices around the country. We have a diverse workforce and welcome people from all walks of life.
Deaf Aotearoa is the national service provider for Deaf people in New Zealand.
We work alongside Deaf service users, providing professionally delivered education, employment, health and social services focused on empowerment, independence and progression.
We promote the use of New Zealand Sign Language so Deaf people can fully participate and contribute their skills and talents to New Zealand society and beyond.
We work closely with government agencies, other not-for-profit organisations, and the private sector to increase awareness of the needs of Deaf people and strengthen their rights.
