About The Deaf Lottery Australia
The Deaf Lottery Australia is a fundraising program conducted by Deaf Services, the leading end to end service provider for the Deaf and hard of hearing.
With a vision of individuals and community empowered, connected and achieving, Deaf Services delivers programs and services to enable the Deaf community to live full and independent lives.
Funds raised through the sale of Lottery tickets support these key programs.
Through our registered training organisation Access Training and Education, Deaf Services delivers nationally recognised accredited Auslan (Sign language) courses. We also offer non-accredited Community Auslan classes, Auslan for Families and Auslan camps.
Auslan Connections provides a range of specialist interpreting services across Australia with all profits reinvested in programs supporting the Deaf and hard of hearing community.

Ageing Well services
A Commonwealth approved provider of home care for seniors, our Ageing Well service improves the quality of life, independence and personal well-being of Deaf and hard of hearing seniors.
Lifestyle Support Services
The Lifestyle Support Service assists adults under the age of 65 with disabilities, and who primarily use Auslan to communicate. Our goal is to see our clients living in the general community as independently as possible.
