creating a new social norm for hearing care


Hearing Care is bigger than any one individual or an organisation. We each bring our own unique perspectives and set of experiences, and collaboration enables us to see the bigger picture.

Why participate in Audira?

Because together we can work towards the common objective of creating a new social norm for hearing care.

Our common goal is to create a new social norm where the majority of people respect their hearing and do what they can to keep their hearing working at its optimum throughout life, mindful of the role their hearing plays in their own lives and in society, and confident that society will support them should a residual reduction in their hearing put them at a disadvantage.

Who should participate in Audira?

You should, if you have any interest – professional or otherwise – in hearing care, we invite you to participate – whether you are a hearing care professional, a service-user, a hearing care provider, a supplier or manufacturer, a consumer interest group, a policymaker or even just an interested observer.

The only qualification you need to participate in this online Think Tank is that you follow the Guidelines for Participation.
