Our Charities

Can:Do Hearing is part of the Can:Do Group and all Can:Do Hearing proceeds support Can:Do charities Can:Do 4Kids and Deaf Can:Do.

Can:Do 4Kids, Townsend House,  is South Australia’s oldest charitable service provider, offering vital therapy and support to children and young people who are blind, vision impaired, deaf or hearing impaired.

Established in 1874 by William Townsend as a school and accommodation for deaf and blind children, Townsend House has provided family-centred support for over 140 years.

It is estimated that up to 10,000 South Australian kids face every day with a vision or hearing impairment.

Deaf Can:Do, The Royal South Australian Deaf Society, delivers vital services and support to Deaf and Hard of Hearing South Australians.

Established in 1891 by Townsend House Superintendent Samuel Johnson as the Deaf and Dumb Mission, Deaf Can:Do is South Australia’s second oldest registered charitable service provider.

Throughout the years, Deaf Can:Do’s services have evolved to meet the ever-changing needs of the South Australian Deaf community. Their  work aims to alleviate isolation and equip people who are Deaf and hard of hearing with the assistance, knowledge and confidence to live independently and contribute to the community.
