Deaf Society of Canterbury

Support the profoundly Deaf community in Canterbury.

Canterbury

Deaf Society of Canterbury or Deaf Club as we are known is Is a legally incorporated society and a charity. We have been in existence since 1922 providing facilities for Deaf members of the community to meet and share their common language (New Zealand Sign Language, NZ’s 3rd official language), culture, history and social, sporting and recreational activities.

The ‘Deaf Club’ or 'DSC' as we are known is the ‘second home’ to the Deaf community. It is as important to the Deaf community as a marae is to the Maori community. The Deaf Club is a place where Deaf and Hard of Hearing (HoH) people can feel comfortable; it is a place where all modes of communication are welcome. Deaf Club can help to break down the isolation a Deaf or HoH person can experience in everyday life within the hearing world.

The Deaf Society throughout its 93 year history has been run by Deaf people for Deaf people.
