Hearing Link

Hearing Link Northern Ireland

Participants and a hearing dog at Hearing Link's Self Management Programme in Belfast.


We are a team of staff and volunteers with a regional office based in Lisburn, who work to improve quality of life for people with an acquired hearing loss in Northern Ireland, as well supporting partners, family and friends.

We deliver key services, such as our specialist rehabilitation programmes, and one-to-one support through our growing network of Community Support Volunteers.

We also deliver community events and provide training to local organisations, both of which raise awareness of the practical and emotional challenges faced by those living with hearing loss.

Hearing Link has been working in Northern Ireland since 2013 and are rapidly building our team and the types of support we offer.

Support from Hearing Link Northern Ireland

Members of our Helpdesk Responder Team have personal experience of hearing loss and are here to provide a point of contact for information or support that you may require.

They are assisted by our Community Support Volunteers, who are located across Northern Ireland and able to provide personal and practical advice to support you through your next steps.

We also run a number of specialist support programmes (self management programmes and intensive rehabilitation programmes), and community events (which will be advertised here shortly).

Get involved

We are always looking for new volunteers to join our team and can offer a wide variety of roles to match your skills, interest and availability. Anyone can apply to become a volunteer, whether you have a hearing loss, are the partner of someone with hearing loss or just want help out.

You can also choose to become a member of Hearing Link, or provide a donation towards our work. Either way you will be providing a hugely valuable contribution, by helping to ensure that we can meet the needs of people with hearing loss now and well in to the future.

We are always looking for opportunities to engage with our local communities by giving talks or providing information about the impacts of hearing loss.

Get in touch

We have an office based in Lisburn.
