Redefining what’s possible

At NextSense we believe that everyone should have the power to reach their potential. That’s why we’ve been supporting people with hearing or vision loss for over 160 years.

When you register to Be Bold, you’re joining a community of like-minded people who are raising funds so together, we can lift the limits on what’s possible for Australians with hearing or vision loss.

Anyone can Be Bold. Whether you’re a client, a supporter or you have friends or family with hearing or vision loss, you can create a fundraiser to help children and adults across Australia to reach their potential.

With your help, NextSense can provide vital support for children and adults, carry out more cochlear implants than any other service in Australia, and continue to be a world leader for research, technology, and professional education in the field.
