What we do
NFDHH works with our community, schools, workplaces, the hearing sector and Central Government to ensure the experience of Deafness and hearing loss are understood and recognised and that caring for hearing health is prioritised at every life-stage.
We provide Hearing Screening in secondary schools and workplaces. We also provide vital education on how to care for hearing for life and on Deaf culture.
We offer grants and scholarships to Deaf and hard of hearing Kiwis to assist with accessing hearing aids, furthering their education, or giving back to the Deaf and hard of hearing community through events or services.
NFDHH also provides a community outreach programme, which includes a helpline, care packages, newsletters and online community support. It a life-line to thousands of Deaf and hard of hearing New Zealanders.
