Gather your networks

You can get loud in any way you like – with your family and friends, at work, in your community group or at school. The opportunities are endless!

You can take part as an individual or make as much noise as you can as a team.

You’re making a true difference by helping children with hearing loss learn to hear and speak – giving them the same opportunities as their siblings and peers. How awesome is that.

"To anyone that is even considering it – please just do it!! It’s something that you would never regret becoming involved in. It’s not something that you have to do on your own either. Hear and Say are there every step of the way."

- Kerryn Elliott, mum to 10-year-old Emily who was born with hearing loss

The background

Loud Shirt Day has a bright, 20-year history. Born in South Australia around a coffee table by the Cora Barclay Centre team (now Can:Do 4Kids), it has since grown to become an international collaboration between member organisations of First Voice, made up of other charities across three countries:

  • Hear and Say (Queensland)
  • Auditory Verbal UK (United Kingdom)
  • Can:Do 4Kids (South Australia)
  • NextSense (Victoria)
  • The Hearing House (New Zealand)
  • The Shepherd Centre (New South Wales)
  • Telethon Speech & Hearing (Western Australia)
