Fee Relief

Applying for Fee Relief

Fee relief is provided through a range of generous donors to ensure finances are not a barrier to enter Telethon Speech & Hearing’s early intervention for hearing loss or speech and language delay programs. Fee relief enables your child to attend our early intervention program for up to a year and can provide partial or full fee relief.

Many of our supporters like to engage with fee relief recipients through an annual morning tea and request to be informed of the impact of their support.

All applications are means tested to ensure recipients meet the required criteria for being awarded a scholarship. Information submitted is kept strictly confidential under our Privacy Policy.

To apply for fee relief at Telethon Speech & Hearing, please email bursaries@tsh.org.au.
