OUR STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS
At the Broken Hill Hearing Centre, staff and volunteers are well-placed to assist as each one of us either have some varying degree of hearing loss or have a family member suffer from a hearing impairment or an associated disorder of the ear. This uniquely places us in a better position to provide expertise on a diverse range of hearing loss issues and products for the deaf and hearing impaired. We also support our consumer’s family and carers who are indirectly affected due to their proximity to them.
OUR MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE
Positions on our Management Committee, which includes representatives from our affiliates, is for the most part, filled with hearing impaired volunteers or a family member.
The Catherine Bonnes AM Scholarship Fund comes under the banner of the Hearing Centre sub committee with internal and external members.
