Not only do they provide games and equipment for our residential students to use they also interact and engage fully with them, as positive role models. The FUSE team are always looking for new opportunities to bring our students together with the youth in Sumner and Redcliffs, and the social skills that result in such times is priceless

The service Fuse provides to young people are invaluable in that they allow our youth to participate in planned group learning activities and to socialise outside of school.  As a working parent, it is wonderful to know my daughter is in a safe and fun after school environment - she loves attending sessions at Fuse!

Fuse programme is really great. To have a place for Tweens and teens to meet and "hang out" is a real treasure for the community of Sumner. The school holiday Programmes, discos, and Big nights out also provide kids a way to interact and engage. In a world of electronics and "couch based " actives this programme is a real gem. I suggest more Programmes like Fuse in many more communities!

During their time here the guys have always interacted in a very positive way with our students and their presence is very much valued by both the staff and students. The older students especially enjoy "hanging out" with the volunteers who are excellent role models for our boys entering adolescence.

Our view is that engaging with Deaf Youth at an early stage is important and the excellent work that your organisation has been doing in recent years will only strengthen…
