Hearing aid banks

Some members may be aware that hearing aid banks operate in nearly every state and territory, providing subsidised hearing aids to those on low incomes who are not otherwise eligible for the Commonwealth Government's free hearing aid service.

Western Australia and the ACT do not currently have hearing aid banks and National Seniors Australia is working to ensure this service becomes available in the future.

In Tasmania, a hearing aid bank is offered by Hearing Link Tasmania, which is not mentioned on the Government website.
