Deaf Awareness Week can help

DEAF Awareness Week (May 19-25) is a chance for charities and organisations to join forces to raise awareness of hearing loss in an effort to generate greater understanding of the challenges faced by one in six people in the UK.

Thankfully, Hearing Link, a hearing loss charity that makes it easy to find information and support, is there for people in their time of need. There are large numbers of people who are affected by hearing loss. Getting involved and sharing in this way can help us all learn and benefit. It is done anonymously. Visit www.hearing link.org/deaf-awareness-week.

Hearing Link also has a helpdesk which can be contacted by emailing helpdesk@hearing link.org or by telephone 0300 111 1113 or by SMS to 07526 123255.
