Corporate Partners

Our Partnership Ethos

Australian Lions Hearing Dogs have a variety of generous corporate partners who provide invaluable support to our business, from cash sponsorship to gift in-kind. Without the help from our partners, we simply could not achieve our much-needed goals of supporting the deaf and hard of hearing community across Australia. We are always looking to partner with more businesses, and strongly believe in an equally beneficial relationship. We believe in giving back, and negotiating with individual business needs is a significant part of this. If you are interested in developing a partnership with Australian Lions Hearing Dogs, please contact Alix Katala, Development Director, on (08) 8388 7836,, for a confidential discussion.

As a core Lions Initiative, Australian Lions Hearing Dogs receives ongoing support from Lions Australia and various Lions Clubs around the country. Many Clubs choose to independently support ALHD financially and vote to make contributions to the organisation annually. We are humbled by their ongoing support.

Specsavers Audiology is passionate about providing high quality and affordable hearing care to the community. With over 165 stores across Australia and continuing to grow, Specsavers Audiology has an ethos shared by ALHD of providing localised access to the best quality care for people struggling with hearing loss. ALHD couldn’t hope for a more aligned audiology partner. We are very proud to be sponsored by Specsavers Audiology as we expand our facilities over the coming years and provide even more Hearing Assistance Dogs to people in need around Australia.

Trusts & Foundations

As Australian Lions Hearing Dogs receive no Government funding for our vital services, we rely heavily on a diverse range of income to sustain the ongoing costs bared by us to raise, train, and place Hearing Assistance Dogs.

Many foundations and trusts across Australia have a passion and interest for funding organisations such as ours that focus on disability and animal welfare, something we are proud to provide our community with services for.

If you are the Office Bearer or Treasurer for a trust or foundation that is able to support Australian Lions Hearing Dogs, please get in touch to discuss how you might be able to support a project or program that is of interest to you. For a confidential discussion, please contact Alix Katala, Fundraising Manager on (08) 8388 7836 or email
