The Hearing House

A First Voice Centre

Welcome to The Hearing House

The Hearing House is a charity for deaf children with cochlear implants and hearing aids. 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. Learn more about how cochlear implants are changing the lives of deaf children all over the world.

Poppy's Progress

"Poppy has had her magic ears for 14 months and is making steady progress. She enjoys dancing to music and playing with her sister. The Hearing House has given us the tools, support and knowledge to teach Poppy how to listen and speak. I no longer fear the future like I used to, I truly believe the sky is the limit for Poppy. " - Poppy's Mum.
