What we do

We are the charity making life fully inclusive for deaf people and those with hearing loss or tinnitus. Together, we campaign for an inclusive society. We connect people to practical advice and pioneer new treatments for hearing loss and tinnitus.

Our work across the UK

Our values

Our values guide and challenge how we act, how we behave towards others, and how we go about our day-to-day work. 


We treat people as people, with human warmth, dignity and respect. We show kindness, care and understanding and approach everyone in the way we would like to be approached. We bring our cause to life by focusing on deaf people and those with hearing loss or tinnitus. We also bring to life our charity through people that work with us – from care and support teams, campaigners and scientists to our fundraisers and volunteers. 


We’re passionate about our work and want to make a real difference to people’s lives. If things can be improved, we won’t just settle for how they currently are. We’ve prepared to challenge the status quo. We strive for high standards, taking positive risks and trying new things. 


We work alongside others to achieve the best results. We listen carefully and try hard to understand other views and approaches. We share insights, ideas, learning and resources. We respect and value differences, and we enable others to participate. We act with integrity, building trust.
