About the Organisation
Since starting out in 2008, Hear For You has grown to become a thriving not-for-profit charity.
As well as being registered under ACNC, we are now also a nationally registered NDIS provider. To date, we’ve run over 50 programs and workshops, helping equip over 500 teenagers with essential life and communication skills. Along with our full-time staff, we’ve been lucky to have the help of over 90 volunteers, including some of Australia’s best-known deaf young people. In 2013, we even won a National Disability Award for Excellence in Personal and Community Support.
At Hear For You, we want every teenager to understand that life’s there for the taking – and that being deaf or hard of hearing doesn’t have to stop them achieving their dreams! While we’ve helped many teenagers along their journeys, there are plenty more out there who may still need our help (even if they don’t know it yet). So as far as we’re concerned, the Hear For You journey has only just begun. We are looking for someone to share our journey.
