About us

We are here for the 12 million of us in the UK who are deaf, have hearing loss or tinnitus.

With our communities we’ll change society to make it more inclusive for everyone, help people hear better now and fund world-class research.

Our communities are huge:

  • 1 in 5 of us are deaf or having hearing loss
  • 1 in 8 have tinnitus.

Many more are living with undiagnosed issues. If our work doesn’t directly impact you, it will almost certainly be making a difference for someone you know and love.

We work with our communities and partners across health, employment, research, government and more to change life for the better.
