      Our organisation

      Find out more about our organisation, its structure and where you can find us.

      Our structure

      Action on Hearing Loss is the trading name of a charitable company limited by guarantee. It is governed by its Articles of Association, which were adopted on 14 May 1948, and last amended on 7 November 2008. In addition to the charitable company, Action on Hearing Loss has a wholly owned subsidiary, RNID Activities Limited, which carries out non-charitable trading activities to raise funds for Action on Hearing Loss.

      All our activities are undertaken to further our charitable purposes for the benefit of the public.

      Our Board of Trustees

      Action on Hearing Loss is governed by a Board of Trustees who give us the benefit of their extensive experience in a non-executive capacity. They meet regularly to review our performance and strategies and decide our direction and budget in line with our overall purpose. Up to 14 Trustees work with us voluntarily to make sure we effectively help people confronting deafness, tinnitus and hearing loss to live the life they choose.

      Country Advisory Groups

      Our Country Advisory Groups in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales are led by locally elected Trustees and are responsible for long-term planning for their country and advising us on local priorities and issues.

      Our leadership team

      Action on Hearing Loss is led by our Chief Executive Mark Atkinson, who is responsible for our day-to-day management. He is assisted by five Executive Directors and eight Directors. They come from a variety of backgrounds in the charity and private sectors but have a single passion for our cause.

      Our Vice-presidents

      Our Vice-presidents are people with an outstanding track record in their professional lives. They support our cause by attending high-profile events and promoting our work.

      Our offices

      Our head office is in London and we have country offices in Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.
