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.
The Hearing House provides service to over 260 children with mild to profound hearing loss enabling them to learn to listen and speak with regular audiology appointments and therapy sessions, social events and outreach programmes.
Construction of our new $8 million Hearing House Centre is under way. It’s an exciting project and will help us better meet the needs of deaf children and adults. So far we have raised more than $6 million and need your help to raise the remaining money.

"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.
