Helping children to reach their full potential.

From humble beginnings…

February saw Hear and Say Townsville transition to a new space on campus at James Cook University, bringing more therapy rooms and increased space to support Hear and Say’s growing services.

Hear and Say’s Townsville program started in 2009, with one audiologist. Now, over 30 families in Townsville and North Queensland are seen at the centre, or via Telepractice. This has been made possible with the generosity of our corporate partners, government and the community.

This includes a long-standing partnership with natural resources company, Glencore, who have enabled Hear and Say to provide increased services, equipment and occupational therapy to North Queensland families through their Glencore Community Program North Queensland initiative. Thank you for your amazing support Glencore!
