Our Purpose and Ambition

NextSense, formerly Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children (RIDBC), is a not-for-profit organisation supporting people who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind or have low vision across Australia. We work with children, adults and their families to educate and create an individual program of care that meets their unique needs. We’re a registered NDIS provider, and we work with our clients to achieve their own goals and potential.

NextSense has been breaking boundaries since 1860, and we’ve been expanding our services ever since. Today, we deliver world-class education, cochlear implant, allied health, therapy, research and clinical services to children, adults and their families.

We provide a holistic approach to hearing services for newborns through to people over 90 years old, and we help children who are blind or have low vision to develop the right skills, mobility and independence to confidently explore their world.

We’re committed to research and innovation; harnessing the latest technologies and new ways of thinking and educating the next generation to lead the way in hearing and vision services.
