We work with those who have lived in the hearing world and who now find themselves with some degree of hearing loss, by offering practical help, support and guidance. Our service is countywide. We also run hearing aid support sessions in the following areas: Chelmsford, Maldon & District, Braintree & District, Pitsea, and Uttlesford, where volunteers can clean and retube NHS hearing aids. Clients who live outside this area are welcome to visit us in the Resource Centre.
We visit residential homes, day centres, community health clinics and day hospitals; running hearing aid support sessions, where several people can be helped in one visit. We also provide information and training for staff within residential homes and day centres, and offer Deaf Awareness training to organisations across the county.
We have a team of dedicated volunteers many of whom are hard of hearing themselves so can empathise as well as offer practical help. We offer a home visiting service for housebound clients requiring hearing aid retubing living within the Chelmsford, Braintree, Maldon, Pitsea and Uttlseford areas.
