Hearing support sessions

If you or someone close to you has hearing loss, or you are experiencing a change in your hearing, you may benefit from the advice of our peer support volunteers.

We host Hearing Support Sessions at drop in sessions across the UK, via 1-1 video calls and also at our Hearing Loss Community Days in towns and villages near you.

Emotional and practical support

These sessions are designed to support you if you want to talk to someone who understand the changes in your hearing and can talk to you in confidence. Our trained peer support volunteers and experienced staff are on hand to offer emotional and practical support about different aspects of living with and managing your hearing.

You can also find out more about hearing loss, where to access technology that could support you day-to-day and information about local services that are available.
