As lockdown and social distancing continue, people with hearing loss are more at risk to be marginalised and isolated from their communities and loved ones. Hearing loss affects 1 in 5 of us, and our research shows that age-related hearing loss is particularly prevalent, with 42% of people over the age of 50 living with hearing loss
RNID has created a comprehensive info pack to help you continue to support those around you with D/deafness, hearing loss, and tinnitus during the Covid-19 lockdown. Please download here:
Free online presentations
In addition, RNID is offering free online talks, presentation or training to local groups on any issues around hearing loss. These are available to groups in the community, and staff meetings as well.
For more information about these, please contact Jason Sculthorpe, RNID Project Coordinator Devon & Cornwall, via email Jason Sculthorpe Jason.Sculthorpe@rnid.org.uk or mobile 07393 147780.
