      Need some extra help with your NHS hearing aids? Come along to our Hear to Help drop-in session for for BSL users aged 50+, for free hearing aid repairs, information and friendly support.

      We know it can take time to get used to hearing aids, understand the different settings and learn how to take care of them. At our Hear to Help drop-in sessions, you’ll have plenty of time to find out how your hearing aids work, how to look after them, and the simple things you can try if one of them stops working properly.

      You can also drop by if you’re having problems with one or both of your hearing aids, and we’ll see if there’s a simple fix. If there isn’t, we’ll recommend you see your audiologist.

      At Hear to Help, we can help deaf and hard of hearing BSL users by:

      • translating letters
      • helping you accessing services
      • giving advice on benefits 
      • providing information and referral to other services.

       

      We can also give you information about assistive technology and products that you can use with your hearing aids, and let you know about other useful services in your area.

      All of our drop-ins are run in partnership with hospital audiology departments. Whether you’re new to hearing aids or have been using them for a while, we’re here to help you get the most from them.

      Drop in to one of our sessions in Lincoln – no appointment necessary.
