Deafblindness is a condition that includes both hearing and visual impairments that affects many Australians. Therefore, it's important to have an easily accessible resource available to them.
There are many stories of people who are deafblind who, despite the challenges, learn communication systems and strategies to overcome those daily hurdles in life. Deafblind Information is an innovative site with access to up-to-date information for individuals living with a combination of vision and hearing impairments, their families and support members, as well as the professionals and support providers.
If you are looking to learn more about deadblindness or to find deafblind support services in your local community around Australia, visit the Deafblind Information website, the leading online resource for deafblind information.

The Clontarf Foundation exists to improve the education, discipline, self esteem, life skills and employment prospects of young Aboriginal men and by doing so, equip them to participate more meaningfully in society.
- Charity:Aboriginal,Local Community,Sport & Recreation
Using the passion that Aboriginal boys have for football allows Clontarf to attract the boys to school. But it is not a sporting program.
Each Clontarf Academy, formed in partnership with the local school, is focussed on encouraging behavioural change, developing positive attitudes, assisting students to complete school and secure employment. Fundamental to this, is the development of values, skills and abilities that will assist the boys to achieve better life outcomes.
Through a diverse mix of activities, the full-time, local Clontarf staff mentor and counsel students while the school caters for the educational needs of each student.
Since opening its first Academy for 25 boys on the campus of the Clontarf Aboriginal College in Perth, Western Australia in 2000, the Foundation has grown rapidly and has been consistently successful.
We now cater for approximately 2,800 boys in 54 schools across Western Australia, Northern Territory, Victoria and New South Wales.
Variety WA is all about empowering Western Australian children who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs to live, laugh and learn.
Variety WA began in 1980 and, since then, has raised and given away more than $20 million to enrich the lives of children in need. Funds are raised each year through a range of unique events including the iconic Variety Bash, Variety Bike Run and Variety 4WD Challenge, as well as the quirky Variety Santa Fun Run, many generous corporate sponsorships and individual donations from the community.
Variety WA operates with a small but dedicated team of staff in our office in Victoria Park, with volunteers spread throughout the state. Our Midwest, Pilbara and Goldfields branches, located in Geraldton, Port Hedland and Kalgoorlie respectively, are largely volunteer run, with local supporters and donors raising funds to deliver help back to local children in need.
As a unique independent not for profit organisation we offered a range of free mental health services to support vulnerable young people in Western Australia.

Depression and suicide are two tragic issues that touch everyone in our community.
Research indicates that around 1 in 4 young people will have had a depressive disorder by the end of their adolescence and incredibly on average a young person commits suicide almost every week in Western Australia.
These statistics are heartbreaking and they should be considered unacceptable in our society today yet the stigma, a lack of understanding and awareness as well as a chronic lack of resourcing in the sector means that too many young people suffer for too long.
At Youth Focus we are committed to making a difference in the lives of young people who are suffering and those who see no hope on the horizon. As a unique independent not for profit organisation we offered a range of free mental health services to support vulnerable young people in Western Australia.
We operate with a team of highly trained and skilled psychologists, social workers and occupational therapists to provide a range of early intervention and prevention services free of charge, aimed at supporting young people and their families to overcome the issues associated with suicide, depression and self harm.
