Hard of Hearing
Deaf Direct offers hard of hearing social groups enabling hard of hearing people, and those with tinnitus, to engage in accessible social activities together. Any hard of hearing people or those with tinnitus can participate in the groups and the activities – supportive friends and family are also welcome to attend.
What do the groups do?
They are an opportunity to meet socially with others who have similar hearing problems in a friendly atmosphere, to enjoy a social coffee morning and reduce the isolation so often felt by those with a hearing loss. Our monthly programme is varied, we have visiting speakers covering a range of topics, not just those linked to deafness, or sometimes just a social session where you can chat. During the summer we have outings and at Christmas a party or theatre trip. Each month we try to have a short exercise of lipreading, a skill which is invaluable to the hard of hearing.
Sessions cost £2.50 to attend.
