Be part of the movement to Break the Sound Barrier!

In late 2017 a national parliamentary report to the Australian Parliament called for hearing health and wellbeing to be made a National Health Priority.   You can read a short summary of the report’s 22 recommendations – download Still waiting to be heard – Hearing Health inquiry report – simple language

Parliamentarians of all types support this.  So, let’s not just talk about it – let’s put it into action!

Now it’s time to tell people why your organisation supports this campaign. Here are a few simple actions your organisation can take to help spread the word about the need to make hearing a national health priority.

1. Write today to your state or territory Health Minister

Please write to your local Health Minister and ask them to make a personal commitment to hearing health and wellbeing becoming a national priority.

Let’s get cracking!  We’ve written a letter that you can use or borrow from – download Letter template Health Ministers – hearing a national priority.  And there are contact details for the politicians you can send it to –  download the list of Federal and State Health Ministers contacts here

2. Share the campaign on social media
