About Us

We’ve been supporting the South Australian Deaf and hard of hearing community since 1891.

Established by Townsend House Superintendent Samuel Johnson, Deaf Can:Do, The Royal South Australian Deaf Society is South Australia’s second oldest charitable service provider.

A lot has changed since then, but we are still the only South Australian provider of community support options for people who are Deaf or hard of hearing. From NDIS planning, Community and Lifestyle support, Auslan/English interpreting services, Auslan education programs and day to day challenges – we’ll be there.
