For more than 85 years, our organisation has played a vital role in assisting people navigate the experience of living with hearing conditions.
TODAY, WE WANT TO DO EVEN MORE.
As well as assisting people experiencing hearing conditions, we want to assist those around them. Families, workplaces, communities. We want to eliminate the social and emotional impacts of hearing conditions, and create a world of hearing equality for everyone – particularly those most vulnerable – through connection and participation.
To do that we need to do more than speak up. We need to make some noise.
Soundfair is a non-profit organization committed to hearing equality and to transforming the experience and wellbeing of all people with hearing conditions. We do this by amplifying their diverse voices, focusing on the whole person and catalysing change across the system and society in order to achieve our vision of a fair – fulfilling, accessible, inclusive and respectful – world for people with hearing conditions.
We believe that hearing conditions are about more than just ears and require more than just devices. Centring stories of lived experience in every aspect of our work, we work collaboratively with individuals and communities, together with professionals in the hearing services sector, to engage, empower and catalyse change.
Our projects include research and development; using human-centred design to reimagine hearing care; workplace, community and professional education; offering independent advice and hearing care services and providing reconditioned hearing aids to people who would otherwise be unable to afford them.
We believe businesses, governments, the general public and even health professionals can learn more and do more.
Because we believe a world with hearing equality is possible.
