Deaf survivors

The Survivor Experiences Service aims to be fully accessible to Deaf survivors and is a safe and confidential place to share your experiences of abuse in state and faith-based care.

About the Survivor Experiences Service in New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL).

Working with the Deaf Community

The Survivor Experiences Service and the Crown Response Unit are working with the Deaf, Māori Deaf and disabled community to make sure that the Service is accessible, safe and meaningful for you.

We are gathering the views of the Deaf and disabled community to understand how the Service can meet your needs.

Resources for Deaf survivors

We are working on resources that are tailored for the Deaf community and the Māori Deaf community. This page will be updated with NZSL videos soon.
