Soundfair in the community

Our community projects

Your teacher, partner, colleague, friend, tram driver, and shop assistant all have one thing in common: a hearing condition. More than 1 in 6 people experience hearing conditions. That one person could be you, or someone you know and love. Let’s work together to find creative solutions to ensure we can all access the same information, experiences, and quality of life. Our community is filled with incredible people, stories, experiences, and unique qualities. Central to our mission and vision is social and emotional connection. To achieve this, we have several community programs and initiatives.

VICTORIANS WITH HEARING CONDITIONS: DOING IT TOUGH IN LOCKDOWN #4

Across Victoria, the current restrictions are having a disproportionately negative impact on people living with a hearing condition. Senior Victorians in aged care are particularly at risk of increased experiences of isolation and a lack of connection, given the current restrictions. Lack of support for good communication practices increase the risk of those experiences jeopardising their mental health.
