The Hearing House A First Voice Centre

Help Us To Help Others

The Hearing House only receives half of the funding that it needs from the Government.  We rely on donations to make up the shortfall. We simply can’t help the number of kids that we do without your help. Every dollar counts and goes a long way to changing the lives of deaf children forever. As you can see from the programmes and services we offer we do everything we can to give these kids the best chance they can get to hear and speak like their hearing peers. Please help us help them by getting involved.  Please call our Fundraising and Communications Manager, Melanie Louden on 09 579 2333 to find out more.

Bequests, Wills & Trusts

Death can be a difficult subject to talk about, but the reality is that at some point, each of us will come to the end of our life. Setting up a bequest is a way of honouring and using that knowledge to benefit deaf children far beyond one’s own life span. If you want part of your estate to go to a life changing cause, please consider The Hearing House – part of the Cochlear Implant Foundation of New Zealand.
