Since 2014, we've been working with Boots Hearingcare on the 'The Great Big Hearing Check'. This is a month-long, UK-wide event in which volunteers talk to the public about the importance of their hearing health. During the campaign period, Boots offers free 15-minute hearing checks and for every new appointment booked donates £1 towards our life-changing work offering people support and care and developing new treatments and cures for hearing loss.
So far, this fantastic partnership encouraged over 100,000 people to get their hearing checked, thereby achieving both organisations' strategic objectives, but has also raised more than £300,000 for Action on Hearing Loss.
Our partnership with hearing technology company GN ReSound helps to improve awareness of the latest advancements in hearing device technologies. It also helps support people living with hearing loss in their everyday lives, as well as encouraging the four million people living with unaddressed hearing loss to take action. We've also been able to be a bridge between the manufacturer and consumers by finding volunteers from our supporters with different degrees of hearing loss to trial and test products, and contribute their observations to an extensive written review in our national magazine.
Phonak became a partner when we collaborated on user reviews of new products and technologies aimed at improving awareness of what's currently available in the hearing aid market, and encouraging people to accept and address their hearing loss. As with our partnership with GN ReSound (above), We're also been able to be a bridge between the manufacturer and consumers by finding volunteers from our supporters with different degrees of hearing loss to trial and test products, and contribute their observations to an extensive written review in our national magazine.

Waitrose Community Matters Online
We are delighted to announce the support for the work of Action on Hearing Loss from Waitrose Community Matters Online for the months of March, April and May 2018! For three months culminating in May when we will mark Deaf Awareness Week, our biggest promotional and messaging annual campaign, Waitrose internet shoppers across the UK will be able to select one of three national charities to support in a similar way to the green token scheme that runs in their stores.
Throughout the year, Waitrose Community Matters Online gives from their profits a donation split between three charities based on shopper voting to help good causes. We are delighted to have their support that will go toward our work across the nation in social care and education, campaigning for equality for those with hearing loss and enabling us to support biomedical research into cure and assistive technologies.
