Ear and Hearing Australia is now registered to provide assisted listening devices to Job Access clients who are eligible for financial assistance.
The Job Access Scheme is an Employment Assistance Fund which helps people with disability (hearing impairment) by providing financial assistance to purchase a range of work related communication technology devices, including assistive listening devices (excluding cochlear implants and hearing aids required for general use), paging systems and telephone and computer hardware.
Assistance is available for people who are about to start a job or who are currently working, as well as those who require assistance to find and prepare for work.
The ability to hear clearly in some workplaces is critical to a person’s success, productivity and safety.
For a person who has a hearing difficulty, an assisted learning device may assist them to communicate more effectively in the workplace. if this is required to meet specific needs for the workplace, it may be appropriate to apply for funding for these through the Employment Assistance Fund – otherwise known as the Job Access scheme.
