Online Support From Action on Hearing Loss

After our recent series of posts about helping people suffering from deafness and hearing loss we'd like to introduce you a valuable online resource from one of the country's leading charity's for deaf people.

Action on Hearing Loss is the new name for the RNID and has more than 1,000 staff, 1,092 volunteers and more than 20,000 members who support its work across the UK.

The organisation's aim is to create a world where hearing loss doesn’t limit or label people and where people value and look after their hearing and they have a resource-packed website to help support this goal.

One of its more important sections is entitled Supportng You where you can find the answers to a range of questions related to deafness and hearing loss.

This includes specific GP Support section where you will find information about the impact of undiagnosed hearing loss, how to give the best service possible to patients with hearing loss and making your surgery accessible among other things.

There is also a comprehensive Care and Support section where individuals, carers and professionals can find out about how the organisation can provide advice and support to help them find services to meet their needs.
