      Volunteer your way

      When you volunteer your way, you decide the best way for you to support people with hearing loss, and how much time you can give. And what ever you do, we'll always support and value you.

      Because we value our volunteers, we want you to gain as much as you give by volunteering 'your way'. You decide what skills you'd like to share, improve or gain, the type of activity that suits you, and how much time you can spare.

      What ignites your passion?

      Befriending

      You could join other volunteers running our Hear to Meet social groups, giving people with hearing loss the chance to share their experiences in an informal setting over a cuppa.

      Campaigning

      Or why not campaign with us to make things fairer for people with hearing loss, and to encourage others to value and protect their hearing. Whether it's by raising awareness on social media, writing letters to your local MP, or taking part in protests, your voice matters.

      Hearing aid support

      If you wear hearing aids, you'll know what a challenge it can be to maintain them. When you join our Hear to Help volunteers at local drop-ins, you'll be enabling and empowering people to get the best out of their hearing aids. Some of our current volunteers say this role has helped build their confidence too.
