Half a million pounds of lottery funding will spent on getting hearing aids to those in Wales who need them most.
Action on Hearing Loss Cymru says more than 500,000 people in Wales have hearing loss.
Over the next three years, a drop-in and home service will be expanded to cover the rest of the country.
"It means that the service that people have been enjoying in North Wales over the last two years will be rolled out over the rest of Wales, so people over the rest of Wales will be able to avoid unnecessary trips to hospital" says Richard Williams, from the charity.
