Hear For You is a registered Not For Profit charity registered under ACNC, and is a public benevolent institution.   Recently it has become a nationally registered NDIS provider.  In 2013 Hear For You won a National Disability Award for Excellence in Personal and Community Support.

In 2017 Hear For You is releasing new programs that meet the new challenges set by the incoming National Disability Insurance Scheme and the rapidly changing world that deaf and hard of hearing teenagers face today.
