We have a number of ongoing projects related to support, education and research.
We are incredibly passionate about educating youth about keeping their hearing safe and preventing noise-induced hearing loss.
Hearing health starts from day 1. With ParentCentre, We start with new parents run the Dangerous Decibels programme in schools across the country, which teaches children about making listening safe in a fun and engaging way. We also attend music festivals, giving away free earplugs, and informing youth about how to look after their hearing.
Where funding permits, we support research projects related to prevention of hearing loss. Currently, we are helping fund a research project being undertaken by the University of Auckland which assesses the effectiveness of the Dangerous Decibels programme in teaching young people about keeping their hearing safe.
