Deaf awareness

Our communication tips card provides tips for people who have a hearing loss and are speaking to someone who is hearing on one side, and tips for people who are hearing and are speaking to someone who has a hearing loss on the other.

Our factsheets provide information about deafblindness, how you can support people who are losing their hearing and the latest statistics on hearing loss and tinnitus.

You can order our free factsheets from our helpline.
