LET’S MAKING HEARING SEEN AND PEOPLE HEARD.
Living with hearing conditions is about
more than just your ears.
It’s about being able to share experiences and be connected, wherever, whenever. We are creating a movement to make this happen. Sound fair?
MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Swap notes and make friends with other hard-of-hearing people. This facilitated group meets online the second Thursday evening every other month to chat. This event is fully captioned.
Hard of hearing and deaf Aussies is a moderated Facebook group where you can ask questions, give advice and connect with people from across Australia who understand what it’s like to live with a hearing condition.
Our professional education strives to address the gap in hearing health care between the needs of people living with hearing conditions and the way hearing healthcare is provided.
