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 a number of Hearing Support Sessions in communities across the UK, as well as 1-1 video calls and in-person sessions to help you with the emotional and practical impact of hearing loss.

Here are our currently list of community Hearing Support Sessions:


Emotional and practical peer 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.
