Social Futures is joining in the celebrations for National Week of Deaf People – seven days of national recognition of the achievement of people with deafness and the Australian deaf community.

We are proud that Mark Burgess is part of the Social Futures team – Mark has been wearing hearing aids for most of his life, and every day supports other people with disabilities as a Local Area Coordinator for the NDIS.

We are also very proud to see Mark’s story on the NDIS website during the Week of Deaf People.

The National Week of Deaf People is recognised September 19 to 26 and across Australia celebrations will involve sharing awareness of local, state and national deaf communities, recognising achievements of individuals and spreading the word about inclusion and diversity.

Social Futures has also produced a story about Mark.

Wishing everyone join during National Week of Deaf People.
