Now, more than ever, we need to reach out
and say #ImHearForYou.

We're Here to Support You

This year has taught us about the importance of being there for each other.


We have staff waiting on our helpline, and online community of support available to support you. 


We have a range of services available to help, and our team members are eager to connect with you if you need to talk.


Isolation is an all too common experience for New Zealanders who live in a hearing world with hearing loss, and this is being exacerbated by the COVID-19 restrictions.

We are advocating for better accessibility for national communications and we are sending out care packages to the most vulnerable members of our community.

Your generous support will enable us to reach out and say I'm hear for you.

Hearing Aid Fund

The Hearing Aid Fund has been created to assist New Zealanders with hearing loss who are facing financial hardship to purchase new hearing aids.

Make a difference by donating today. Your gift will be helping those struggling to afford new hearing aids to be able to finally access them.

COVID-19 together.

Looking after your health is really important right now. That's why we've prepared the Essential Health Package, with key health information about how to stay safe during the COVID-19 crisis.

To help you to care for your wellbeing during this challenging and uncertain time, we've created a Care Package with handy tips and suggestions for how to stay well at home.

What We Do

Make Listening Safe

To ensure young people are aware of the risks, we have developed the Make Listening Safe Programme that focuses on educating young people about noise-induced hearing loss and how to protect their precious hearing.  

Hearing Screening Programme

Kiwi kids are losing their hearing. Levels of youth hearing loss have skyrocketed over the last decade. To combat this, NFDHH is providing free hearing screenings at selected Secondary Schools across New Zealand. 

Hearing Accredited Workplaces

11% of working New Zealanders have a hearing loss. The Hearing Accredited Workplace Programme will help your organisation to align your disability & inclusion strategy.
