      Policy, research and influencing

      We regularly carry out research to gain a better understanding of the life experience of people with deafness, tinnitus and hearing loss. This helps us to develop our policy positions in areas such as health and social care, employment, broadcasting and telecommunications.

      Some of our most recent research projects have focused on the employer attitudes towards hearing loss and background noise in cafes, bars and restaurants.

      We also respond to consultations and government inquiries to make sure legislation, regulations and national guidance take account of the needs of people with deafness, tinnitus and hearing loss.

      Policy statements
