      Action on Hearing Loss Scotland, Scottish War Blinded and Age Scotland have produced a Combating Sight and Hearing Loss guide to advise veterans losing their sight or hearing about how to get support.

      The three charities are members of the Unforgotten Forces consortium of 15 leading organisations, led by Poppyscotland, which are delivering enhanced support, such as our Hearing Forces service for older veterans in Scotland who have hearing loss.

      The Combating Sight and Hearing Loss guide provides useful tips and information for military veterans regardless of whether their sight or hearing loss was acquired during their service including:

      • an explanation of hearing loss and tinnitus
      • the signs of hearing loss
      • how to get a hearing test
      • tips for people speaking with you
      • support offered by Hearing Forces
      • assistive equipment for everyday life.
