Conexu Foundation is the go-to national not for profit organisation in technology-based communication access for Deaf, hard of hearing and speech impaired Australians.
We connect people to people through open communication and the consideration that each person is unique.
Communicating is the glue that connects the community together. Without communication, people can feel isolated, depressed and disconnected from the world around them.
We work across the areas of living, working and learning to ensure people have the same experiences that as others have through communication options. From people who are Deaf, hard of hearing, speech impaired, carers, health professions, governments and everyone in between.
We ensure people with diverse communication needs are supported and inspired to embrace new technology and provide training to show individuals and their families how to get the most from technologies for their situation.
Our research programs focus on areas that make the biggest difference in peoples lives. Once we identify these needs, we have relationships with organisations both in Australia and globally, that allow us to understand what technology is available as it develops anywhere in the world. Where solutions exist, we trial these in Australia.
