WHO IS TINNITUS AUSTRALIA?
Tinnitus Australia is a Soundfair initiative.
In 2015, Tinnitus Australia was created by a previous dedicated board member of Soundfair Australia, formerly known as Better Hearing Australia (Vic). Since then Tinnitus Australia has been led by a volunteer group and funded through fundraising and Soundfair reserves.
Soundfair Australia puts people at the centre as we work to create change. We aspire to drive innovation in services and build society-wide awareness and empathy for people that live with hearing.
The primary role of Tinnitus Australia is to provide improved responses for people experiencing tinnitus and much greater recognition of the impacts of tinnitus among health professionals and policy makers.
The Tinnitus Australia Advisory Committee
Tinnitus Australia is steered by the Tinnitus Australia Advisory Committee – a small group of people with tinnitus and professionals who work with people with tinnitus.
