 Barnet Hear to Help volunteers checking hearing aids.

Do you live in North East Essex? Do you wear hearing aids supplied by GP Care?

If so, our Hear to Help service may be able to help you!

Our hearing aid support service in North East Essex works in partnership with GP Care. We provide support to hearing aid users fitted by GP Care. Our aim is to enable people to make the most of their hearing aid and manage their hearing loss effectively.

Our service

Our service is community based and our Community Support Officer and volunteers provide the service through drop-in services and home visits. Our free service includes:

  • tubing, minor repairs, earmould cleaning and battery replacement for GP Care hearing aid users
  • basic training for hearing aid users on maintenance and usage of their hearing aid
  • providing advice and support to enable people to make the most of their hearing aid
  • providing information on other equipment and services
