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.

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.
