You will receive training from local audiology services in addition to a full induction process. We also ensure that you receive ongoing support from your project manager throughout your time with us.
Having this service available reduces the need for people to travel to hospitals for basic hearing aid support and has significantly benefited local NHS audiology departments by enabling audiologists to focus on more demanding tasks.
We're very ambitious about shaping a better future for the 945,000 people who are deaf or have a hearing loss across Scotland. You can help us make a real difference to people affected in your community by sharing your skills, experience, energy, enthusiasm and commitment. We couldn’t help the people we do without the support of our wonderful volunteers.
