We understand you want to know more about your device and how to live with a hearing implant. So we created Cochlear Family to help you get the most from your hearing.

The programme provides answers to your day-to-day questions.

It also gives you access to the largest community of Cochlear device recipients around the world. Hear their stories and learn from their experience.

You get many other benefits, such as free shipping on purchases from our online store and invitations to special events.

What it means to be a member of the the Cochlear Family

Tools and information

Your hearing changes and evolves. So do your hearing needs.

The Cochlear Family programme recognises your situation and gives you information relevant to your stage of your hearing journey. For example, if you've just got your implant, we know you need information about how to use your device, how to troubleshoot the basics, plus tips for dealing with your day to day life.

We have a range of products and support tools to help many different people. For example, you may need more training and practice to make sense of the new sounds you hear.

So we offer guides to help you rediscover the joy of music or to distinguish the pitch of spoken language. 

Information about the latest technology

We are always seeking to improve our products and services to make sure we evolve with the latest research.

As part of the Cochlear Family, you'll hear about our latest technology releases, how they may help you get more from your hearing, and whether they're right for you.

Invitations to events

Our Cochlear Family programme is a way to bring people together.

It offers our recipients – and their parents or carers – the chance to meet each other, share personal experiences, learn from one another, and create new networks.

It's a great way to meet other people who understand what you've experienced.

Our events range from small local meet-ups to larger-scale education sessions.

Fast customer service

We can resolve your query faster by using the information you gave us when you joined Cochlear Family — and the history of when and why you've called us. We want you back on air as soon as possible.

Opportunities to give feedback

We know you have many great ideas about how we could improve your hearing experience. We’d love to hear them.

As a Cochlear Family member, you can join our online research community, Cochlear Conversations, and help us create the next big thing for our growing family.

Who can join Cochlear Family?

Cochlear Family is free to join for people who have a hearing implant from Cochlear. It's also free for their carers.
