We support Australians who have hearing or vision impairment, and the people who support them

How can we support you?

Hearing & Vision Services

We offer a broad range of specialist services and therapies for children and adults, and flexible support options.

Each year, more than 8,000 people benefit from our hearing and vision services. We also provide screening for over 3,000 children and around 400 cochlear implant surgeries each year.

RIDBC has set some great foundations and for that I am truly grateful. With their continued support I am confident that Jack will do well at school and beyond.

World Class Education & Research

We provide education for children and adults who have hearing or vision impairment, their families and the professionals who support them.

RIDBC Renwick Centre is Australia’s premier provider of training and education for professionals in the field of sensory disability. More than 700 professionals from around the world have received qualifications through RIDBC Renwick Centre.

Research carried out at the centre ensures services delivered throughout government and non-government organisations remain cutting-edge.

Supporting RIDBC

We're a charity and rely on your support to continue helping children and adults who have hearing or vision impairment.

Government, NDIS and private funding helps, but your generosity ensures each child, adult and family get the support they need.
