HALO team recognised for outstanding volunteering

Our wonderful Hearing Aid Liaison Outreach (HALO) team in Scotland has been recognised for its outstanding volunteering.

The group, who provide fortnightly support sessions for patients at Edinburgh’s Adult Audiology unit, were presented with a certificate from Volunteer Edinburgh.

Each year, Volunteer Edinburgh hosts an Inspiring Volunteer Team Awards, and the HALO volunteers were recognised for the emotional and practical support they provide to patients newly diagnosed with hearing loss and their families and friends.

The sessions are funded by See Hear Fund in Scotland and the Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership.

The team (pictured left) was presented with their certificate at their latest get-together at Hearing Link’s Scotland Offices. There was even a chance to enjoy a piece of cake and a natter!

They were joined at the event by Susan Shippey, Strategic Planning and Commissioning Officer and See Hear Lead for the Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership, and Denise Rennex, Audiologist, from NHS Lothian.


The drop-in sessions run from 1.30pm-4pm on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month at the Adult Audiology department, Level 1, Lauriston Buildings, Edinburgh.
