About Us

What we do

Hearing Link Tasmania’s business is to minimise the impacts of hearing loss on the lives of individuals in the community. Established in 2007, the organisation focuses on the delivery of accessible and community-based support and information services.

Our services include the provision of free hearing screenings, hearing loss consultations, support groups, prescription of Assistive Listening Devices (ALDs) and referrals and links to relevant health services.

We also provide fee-for-service testing in noisy workplaces. This service aims to address the preventable causes of hearing loss and reduce its negative impacts on individuals and workplaces.

Last but not least, Hearing Link Tasmania runs public educational programs around hearing loss and its impacts. We offer a range of resources including communication tool-kits that can be provided in conjunction with our education programs.
