Hearing Nelson is a charitable organisation established in 1953. A branch of Hearing New Zealand, we aim to improve the lives of those who are deaf or hard of hearing in the Upper South Island through one-on-one support and services such as hearing screening tests, hard of hearing advocacy and public awareness. We offer flexible education programmes centred on proactively preventing hearing loss for children, young people and adult community and industrial groups.
There are three core focuses for our organisation.
We support those in the community who are Deaf or hard of hearing. Our membership programme offers a quarterly newsletter plus discounts on accessory products and free hearing aid cleaning services.
We educate the people of our community about how to keep their hearing safe and about noise-induced hearing loss. A particular focus is to reach out to our youth to encourage early awareness and intervention.
We offer hearing aid cleaning services and sales of batteries, cleaning and drying products, earplugs and assisted devices such as personal amplifiers, specialist telephones and alarm clocks.
Get in touch with Hearing Nelson if you have any queries about what we do, our membership programme or how to get involved. We would love to hear from you.
