Deafness Central Coast
Supporting the Hard of Hearing on the Coast since 1977
A bit about Deafness Central Coast....
The Central Coast Branch of Better Hearing Australia (BHACC) strives to improve the quality of life for people with a hearing impairment by promoting good communication and life solutions through the provision of education, support and advocacy.
We assist all hard of hearing people, their families and friends with information and advice on hearing.
Better Hearing Australia (BHA) was founded in Victoria early after World War I.
The first Central Coast lipreading class was held in 1977. The class was led by members of Newcastle’s BHA at the request of the Gosford Hospital Audiologist, in order to assist the hard of hearing who could not find the support they needed in any existing services at the time.
In 1981 the Better Hearing Australia Central Coast (BHACC) branch was established.
BHACC maintains the strong philosophy of self-help and draws on the value of volunteer-led support groups.
You can find out more about who we are and the way we assist the hard of hearing, and their family and friends, by exploring the pages of this site, or by contacting us directly.
Why choose us...
The members of Better Hearing Australia are predominantly hearing impaired people and understand the hearing loss journey that others are taking.
We DO NOT provide hearing services or SELL hearing aids but offer advice and support to the hard of hearing, their family and friends so that they can be more inclusive in everyday living.
Do you have hearing aids or assistive listening devices that are no longer used? Then we can have them reconditioned and given to people who are unable to afford to buy these devices.
