Once cleaned and checked, Recycled Sound forwards the hearing aids to the Victorian Hearing Aid Bank (VHAB), an unfunded project operated by our partner, Better Hearing Australia.
The VHAB recondition and reprogrammes hearing aids so that they can be fitted to recipients who would otherwise be unable to access hearing aids. Read some of their stories.
With the support of Recycled Sound, and your donations, VHAB is able to help many more people receive the gift of better hearing.

More about the Victorian Hearing Aid Bank
Established in 2009, the VHAB aims to reduce the impact of hearing-related issues by maximising the number of disadvantaged Victorians with a hearing loss who can access hearing aids.
Better Hearing Australia is the only provider of a hearing aid bank in Victoria.
Each year this program supports around 150 Victorians to receive recycled hearing aids.
