A platform for personal stories that connects people and amplifies the voices of people who experience the social and emotional impacts of hearing conditions? That sounds fair to us. We recognise that social connection is not always within people’s reach, particularly for people with hearing conditions. Social media can be a good way to reach out and connect.

Hearing conditions are invisible, but the social and emotional impacts are not.


At Soundfair, everything we do is led and informed by the needs of people who experience the social and emotional impacts of hearing conditions. 

The [email protected] project runs on Soundfair’s social media channels on Saturday, when each week a different person tells their story. We publish a recap here the following week.

Being vulnerable takes strength. If you would like to share your story, please contact Lisa, [email protected] or call 1300 242 842.
