To offer an excellent, sustainable service to all those who are hearing impaired and to those associated with them, in order to enhance their immediate and future expectations and potential.
Who are we?
Hearing Support Christchurch is a non profit, non government funded organisation formed in 1938. Hearing Associations throughout New Zealand offer unbiased information about hearing matters to all, and a valuable first-port-of-call to the hearing impaired, their families and friends.
We rely on donations, subscriptions and grants to maintain our work. Bearing this in mind our web site has been created to provide you with information, references and assistance to hearing problems.
The work of Hearing Support Christchurch is coordinated by the President, the Board and the Services Co-ordinator. The Services Co-ordinator looks after the day to day running of the organisation.
How we can help?
We can assist you in the following ways:
We provide a service to Rest Homes to assist Rest Home Residents who struggle to clean and/or maintain their hearing aids. Our Field Worker visits facilities on a regular basis to carry out this essential work.
Dangerous Decibels Programme
Hearing Support Christchurch have recently introduced the DANGEROUS DECIBELS PROGRAMME to our Education arm. The Programme aims to educate children in Years 4 to 8 about the ear, hearing, decibels and how to prevent noise induced hearing loss. The presentations are educational, scientific, fun and interactive!
