A voluntary organisation promoting and advancing the interests and well-being of all people affected by  hearing loss. Rehabilitation of persons who are hearing impaired to ensure their well being and independence.   Education within the Community on the importance of protecting your ears and your hearing.

Hearing Loss is the largest disability sector – 18.9% of the adult population and this percentage is increasing every year due to the advent of excessive noise exposure in the modern society. Our youth are suffering from early hearing problems at an alarming rate worldwide.

The Hearing Association has been visiting primary schools and giving a short talk on the importance of protecting your hearing and the dangers of noise. We visit rest homes on a monthly basis ans assist the hearing impaired who cannot get to our rooms for assistance and help with their hearing and hearing aids.

  • Your hearing is precious.  Look after it as once it is damaged it cannot be repaired.  Being young won’t protect you!
    If you have to raise your voice to speak to someone next to you, the noise around you is dangerous.
    TURN IT DOWN, WALK AWAY, AND WEAR PROTECTION

    Words of Wisdom
  • The Hearing Association of New Zealand is passionate about helping those with hearing impairments to experience life to the fullest.  If you need our support or are interested in supporting the work that we do, we would love to hear from you.
