Welcome to The Hearing House

The Hearing House is a charity for deaf children and their families. Our mission is to enable deaf or hearing impaired children to listen and speak like their hearing peers. We aim to give deaf children with cochlear implants or hearing aids the ability to fulfil their potential and live an independent life in a hearing and speaking world. The Hearing House serves the needs of hundreds of hearing impaired children and their families from Kaitaia to Turangi.

For Families

The Hearing House provides services for children with a mild to profound hearing loss to enable them to learn to listen and speak with regular audiology appointments and therapy sessions. To learn more about our programmes and services for families click here.

From Lance Cairns

"Getting my implant totally changed my life - I spoke on the telephone to my son Christopher for the first time in nearly 40 years. I started going out more and began working properly again.  It gave me more confidence and helped me to restore old friendships and develop new ones." - Lance Cairns, NZ Cricket Legend.
