Action on Hearing Loss - South West
Description

Action on Hearing Loss - South West (previously Royal National Institute for Deaf)
Through our outreach information service, we provide face-to-face information across the South West by giving talks and presentations, and attending exhibitions.

We work hard to reach people who are isolated and have little access to information on deaf awareness issues, equipment, services and benefits.

We also liaise with health, social services and residential care professionals to:

Improve awareness of the needs of people who are deaf or hard of hearing and -
give them information on how to improve access to the equipment and services that are available
Talks are given to nursing home staff, local community groups, health professionals and anyone wanting to find out more about deafness.
