Hearing Concern

Hearing Concern exists to help overcome the frustration, isolation and loneliness experienced by millions of people in the UK who have hearing loss. It is the country’s leading provider of advice and support, campaigns on behalf of its client group and promotes awareness of the communication needs of deaf and hard of hearing people.

Hearing Dogs for the Deaf

In Britain, out of every 1000 people, 200 will have a significant hearing loss, 85 of these may be potential Hearing Dog recipients. Many deaf people have feelings of isolation and loneliness as well as social alienation; not only are they cut off from the sounds of conversation but also from the signals of danger, emergency and alarm. Our aim is to train dogs as 'hearing ears' for deaf people. By responding to every day sounds within the home, the dogs communicate by touch and then lead to the sound source, thus providing a deaf person with greater independence and confidence, more awareness of their environment as well as the blessing of companionship and feeling of security.
