Imagine being in a room full of people who just “get it”.
That’s what it’s like stepping inside a Hear For You workshop or event. Founded and run by deaf young adults, Hear For You is a community full of people who have ‘been there, done that’ and who want to make those teenage years easier for you.
Through Hear For You, you can find an instant network of friends, support and advice. Our mentors are happy to share their real life experiences. They can teach you skills to deal with challenges you might be facing. After all, who else gets what it’s like having to wear a hearing device every day, or ask strangers to repeat themselves five times?
So what are our programs actually like?
Our mentors are all young, fun and have very recently been in your shoes – which means they can actually relate to what you’re going through.
We offer Life Goals and Skills programs that cover things like career options, confidence buuiling and communication strategies.
We also have Rock My World programs where you get to hang out and do fun activities like escape rooms, treetop adventures and dodgeball.
Want to be with other teenagers who understand?
We would love to meet you. Download our brochure for more information.

“THE MENTORS GAVE US USEFUL TIPS FOR JOB APPLICATIONS. THEN IN ANOTHER SESSION THAT I REALLY LIKED WAS THE COMMUNICATION AND DRAMA WORKSHOP. THE MENTORS, HEATHER AND JOHN WERE VERY SUPPORTIVE IN INCREASING MY SELF-ESTEEM AND CONFIDENCE. IT HAS GIVEN ME EXPERIENCES OF OTHER HARD OF HEARING MENTORS AND MENTEES. I CERTAINLY DEVELOPED A CAN-DO ATTITUDE POST HEAR FOR YOU.” Aarsi
