Action on Hearing Loss
We're the UK’s national charity helping people who are confronting life-changing deafness, tinnitus and hearing loss.
The people we support may struggle with their condition. Or they may live well with it, but face ignorance and barriers in their way. We enable all of them to take control of their lives without assumptions being made about what they can or can’t do.
With your support, we can continue our vital services so people with hearing loss can live the life they choose - at home, at work and when they're out and about. Plus, we can carry out more research to help find a cure.
