  • 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.

  • 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.
