Imagine not being able to hear the birds singing in the morning, your child’s first words, or someone telling you “I love you”. Perhaps you’ve never been able to hear these things – or perhaps suddenly you’ve found it more difficult to hear people.
For some people, this is a reality. It is estimated that the following number of people are living with hearing loss locally:
- 31,000 people in Herefordshire
- 95,000 in Worcestershire
- 110,000 in Oxfordshire
Fortunately, Deaf Direct is here to help Deaf and hard of hearing people to overcome the barriers they face. We are committed to working in these three counties to improve the lives of people affected by hearing loss.
