We believe that experience of hearing loss should be visible and understood in New Zealand.
That's why we are working hard to raise awareness for the everyday experiences of Deaf and hard of hearing Kiwis.
All of our events focus on creating a more inclusive and accessible society that recognises the needs of our Deaf and hard of hearing community.
Listen Up 2023
Proudly sponsored by Auckland Transport, our Venue Partner, and Triton Hearing, our Hearing Accredited Partner.
Access Matters: From Access Denied to Access Enabled.
On World Hearing Day, the Listen Up Conference 2023 shines a light on accessibility for your Deaf or hard of hearing employees and customers.
With one in six New Zealanders living with hearing loss - accessibility isn’t just an option.
What is the cost of denying access through a lack of accommodation? What are the accessibility strategies you can put in place in your workplace to enable and empower?
Join us to discover how to transform your workplace into one that enables Deaf and hard of hearing employees and customers.
