Our Mission

Founded in 1932, Hearing New Zealand has been working hard with the help of our members and volunteers to help individuals around the country who are deaf or hard of hearing. Our work is dedicated to improving the lives of our members and non-members through one-on-one support and free services such as free hearing tests. We're also involved in advocacy and education around hearing protection as well as research.


Our Causes

There are three 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
