Let's overcome isolation.

Say #ImHearForYou

Together, we can tackle ‘the epidemic of isolation’ faced by the Deaf and hard of hearing. With your help, we can reach out to the most vulnerable in our community and let them know they are not alone.  

We are here to

support you

Are you seeking support or do you have a question for us? Please don’t hesitate to get in touch.


There is also a range of free support services available that can be a lifeline in challenging times.

Are You Up for the Challenge?

Hearing loss can significantly impact someone’s life 24/7. This September, in support of New Zealand Sign Language week, we’re inviting you to walk in the shoes of someone with hearing loss for 30 minutes.
