The risk to people with hearing loss in Wales
Freedom of Information requests show that social service budgets for people with hearing loss across Wales have been cut dramatically in recent years - in some areas by over 50%.
Adapted telephones, flashing doorbells and hearing loops are some of the potentially life-changing items that should be provided for deaf people by their local social services department.
But thousands of people with hearing loss across Wales are now not getting the support they need and could be at risk of serious isolation, loneliness and, as a result, mental health issues.
