Equipment such as flashing or vibrating alarms and doorbells can make life easier and safer for Deaf and hard-of-hearing people.
To access government-funded equipment you need to have an assessment with one of Deaf Aotearoa’s qualified assessors, who then makes an application on your behalf.
Government-funded equipment has specific eligibility criteria, which Deaf Aotearoa Facilitators can explain.
Equipment is supplied by other agencies. Deaf Aotearoa works closely with these agencies, for example coordinating with the NZ Fire Service to process applications for visual smoke alarms.
