Hearing connects us to our world

Whether you are someone with a hearing implant, a parent of a child with hearing loss, or a carer, you deeply understand what it’s like to live with hearing loss. You are part of a global community, and one that we strive to support and foster.

Personal connections are everything - connecting to loved ones and all of life’s opportunities. And with Cochlear, you become part of the world’s largest community of individuals with hearing implants. Through programs like Cochlear Family and Cochlear Volunteers, you can access support and advocacy to help you through your hearing journey.

And it doesn’t stop there. We also support hearing health professionals to advance hearing science and improve care. Beyond that, we work alongside advocacy organisations, researchers and governments to normalise hearing loss, challenge stigma and advocate for access.

Everyone who becomes a Cochlear recipient embarks on a lifetime of collaboration as well. With us and the broader hearing health community. We are by your side through the entire journey, so you can experience a life full of hearing.
