Break the Sound Barrier is uniting our entire sector for a common cause - to make hearing a national priority.

Hearing is not one of Australia’s national health priorities.  It means there we do not have the adequate investment in services and research we need. It also means there is not a focus on community education. It’s a barrier that is preventing too many Australians from reaching their potential.

The campaign has a new website and Facebook page and even a video.  Its aim is to tell our stories and share our experiences to get hearing on the national agenda.  The long term goal is for state and the federal governments agreeing to make hearing Australia’s 10th national health priority.

We’ve already started to be heard in the media and this is only the beginning.  Be part of the movement to Break the Sound Barrier!  Now it’s time to tell everyone why you are a supporter.  Be part of the movement. Sign up to the campaign to Break the Sound Barrier at
