Virtual Bubble is for deaf and hard of hearing 8 - 11 year old youth from all around Australia. It is a casual get together aiming at creating connections and providing a bit of respite during these difficult times.

Over this unique session, participants will get to discuss their lives, what it means to be deaf and hard of hearing in lockdown, enjoy activities prepared by our wonderful mentors and have a chat about anything they want to discuss.

Our 2 friendly deaf mentors will facilitate the session. They have lived experience and are passionate about supporting young people, to help them build self-esteem and to reach their goals.

A bilingual environment of Auslan and spoken English is offered to support all forms of communication. An Auslan interpreter will be present. Live captions are available when required.
