The Shepherd Centre has been providing children in NSW and the ACT with hearing loss with the tools they need to learn to listen and speak since 1970. Their Early Intervention program is world-renowned for its results. More than 90 percent of children with hearing loss who graduate from the program attend school with listening and language skills on par with those of their hearing peers.

Located within the University of Sydney on the Sydney Eye Hospital campus the Save Sight Institute is involved in a number of aspects including research, patient care and teaching. Save sight cares for more than 6,000 patients with eye disorders.

Parents of Deaf Children (PODC) is a non-profit organisation, supporting families with babies, children and teenagers with hearing loss in NSW. The organisation offers a range of information, support and capacity building services for parents and carers, respecting the method or methods of communication that the family has chosen for their child.  PODC can assist families with free decision making and planning support prior to attending your NDIS planning meetings. Their support also extends to helping families to connect with others in their local area via POD groups (parent groups) and can advocate on behalf of families with government departments and service providers.

Genetic Alliance Australia, formerly Association of Genetic Support of Australasia (AGSA), was formed in 1988 to provide peer support and information for individuals and families affected by a rare genetic condition/rare disease.
