The Government has contracted ACCAN to research the ways in which people who are Deaf, Deafblind or have hearing or speech impairment use the new Accesshub website. Participants will receive a $100 gift card to thank them for participating in the project. Light refreshments will also be provided.

The focus groups will go for about 2.5 hours. When you arrive there will be an information sheet and consent form to fill out, as well as a short questionnaire. During the focus group, we will ask questions about the Accesshub website. Participants will be encouraged to offer feedback and insights on the current Accesshub website, and how it could be improved.

All of these focus groups will be live captioned and Auslan interpreted. 

ACCAN is able to support participants to attend the focus groups if needed, for instance, by providing cab charge vouchers or travel reimbursements, or arranging accessibility supports.

The Hobart Sessions are listed below:
People who are Deaf: Thu 29 Aug from 10am - 12:30pm
People who are Deafblind: Thu 29 Aug from 1.30pm - 4pm
People who have hearing impairment: Wed 28 Aug from 10am - 12.30pm
People who have speech impairment: Wed 28 Aug from 1.30pm - 4pm
