Hearing Link Wales
Hearing Link Wales has been active since 2013.
We are a team of staff and volunteers who work to improve quality of life for people with hearing loss in Wales, as well supporting partners, family and friends.
We are developing our key services, such as our group and one-to-one support through a growing network of volunteers.
We also deliver community events and provide training to local organisations, to raise awareness of the practical and emotional challenges faced by those living with changes in their hearing.
Support from Hearing Link Wales
Members of our Helpdesk Responder Team have personal experience of hearing loss and provide a point of contact for information or support.
They are assisted by our Community Support Volunteers, who are able to provide personal and practical advice to support you through your next steps.
We also run a number of group programmes and community events throughout the year, and these will be advertised on our website as they become available.
We are always looking for new volunteers to join our team and can offer a wide variety of roles to match your skills, interests 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 to 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 look forward very much to hearing from you!
