Get help with your hearing

Your hearing health is important to your overall health and wellbeing. Untreated hearing loss can have a big impact on your life. That’s why it’s important to think about your hearing in the same way you think about other health concerns.

Hearing Services Program

The Hearing Services Program provides subsidised high-quality hearing services and devices to eligible Australians with hearing loss.

Roadmap for Hearing Health initiatives

We have implemented several initiatives based on recommendations from the Roadmap for Hearing Health. These were designed to raise awareness, build our evidence base, improve ear health among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People, and improve hearing support among older Australians.
