Become a corporate partner
We’re here to support the 12 million people in the UK who are deaf, have hearing loss or tinnitus. But we can’t do it alone. Find out how your company can make a difference through a mutually beneficial partnership.
Work with us to transform lives
Our communities are huge: One in five adults in the UK are deaf, have hearing loss or tinnitus. They are your customers, clients and employees.
We create life-changing partnerships for our communities across 4 key areas:
- Inclusion: We work with companies to create products and services that enable people who are deaf, have hearing loss or tinnitus to lead fully inclusive lives.
- Health: We create partnerships to improve people’s hearing health, and help make sure people who are deaf or have hearing loss have equal access to health services.
- Employment: We harness the part employers can play in making sure that people who are deaf or have hearing loss or tinnitus have equal opportunities to work and build their careers.
- Research: We bring companies and leading researchers together to bring about treatments to prevent hearing loss, silence tinnitus and restore hearing for those who need them.
Together, we can make real change happen.

Grant-making corporate trusts and foundations play a transformative role in supporting deaf people and those affected by hearing loss and tinnitus.
Through funding one of our 4 key areas of work – inclusion, employment, health and research – you are in a unique position to make a lasting difference to people who are deaf, have hearing loss or tinnitus by giving a major gift.
Companies can provide strategic support from experts in their respective fields that can help us create a more inclusive world for deaf people and those with hearing loss.
By donating specialist skills, expertise and more, your business can make a huge difference to the work of RNID.
We would welcome the chance to discuss the possibility of pro-bono or gift-in-kind support.
RNID is almost completely reliant on voluntary donations: our supporters donate more than 90% of our income. Your company can help to fund our vital work to make life more inclusive for people who are deaf, have hearing loss or tinnitus.
Payroll giving is an excellent way for your employees to support RNID, by committing to a tax-free monthly gift through their salary. It’s the most tax-efficient way to give.
Payroll giving allows us to plan our vital work, including research, projects to improve accessibility and inclusion, and giving practical advice to people who are deaf, have hearing loss or tinnitus.
