About Soundfair

Soundfair is a member-based non-profit committed to hearing equality. For more than 85 years, we have worked to eliminate the social and emotional impact of Victorians living with hearing conditions. Today we’re proud to continue  our work by engaging with people, delivering innovative experiences, serving our community and being a catalyst for change

We want to create urban, work and personal environments that allow fair sound accessibility for those with hearing conditions, recognising the effect it has on them individually and those around them. We want to be a‘go to’ network who will help the under served navigate through life’s hurdles, instilling a sense of belonging within their community; socially, physically, emotionally, spiritually and culturally.

Our strategy

With our new Connect | Create | Catalyse Strategy, our ambition is to transform lives, the system and ourselves. We will do this by engaging with people, not just ears; by creating the future of hearing experiences; by serving our community and particularly those most vulnerable, and, by catalysing change across the system. To find out more about our strategy, please contact Dr Caitlin Barr, CEO [email protected] 

“All I want is to help others see those who have trouble hearing.”
