Welcome to Hearing New Zealand
Te Kahui Rongo o Aotearoa
Founded in 1932, Hearing New Zealand has been working hard with the help of our members and volunteers to improve the lives of our people with hearing impairment though supporting the individual, advocacy, education and research.
There are four core focuses for our organisation.
We support those in the community who are deaf or hard of hearing
We educate people (particularly youth) about how to keep their hearing safe and about noise-induced hearing loss
We commission our own research and help fund research projects relevant to hearing and hearing loss
The consumer voice of the hearing impaired. Accessibilty to hearing health care and Venues are key areas
