If you are struggling, many organisations
can help you find the emotional support you need.

We believe that experience of hearing loss should be visible and understood in New Zealand.

We believe that everyone with a hearing loss should have access to communications technologies, tools and services that enable them to communicate and connect with others.

We believe no one should be at risk of losing their hearing due to noise exposure or other preventable causes, and that every New Zealander should know the risks.
