If you’ve served in the Armed Forces and need information and support to manage hearing loss and tinnitus, we can help. We are also here to support groups working with veterans.
This service is for people living in England, Northern Ireland and Wales. If you are an older veteran with hearing loss in Scotland, please contact our Hearing Forces service.
It’s estimated that 300,000 ex-service personnel in the UK are living with hearing loss or tinnitus. During the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we are continuing to provide information on hearing loss and tinnitus to veterans, their families and carers.
How we can help
We can provide:
- information and support for veterans by phone, video calls, email, LiveChat or post
- an information sheet for veterans and their families
- virtual information sessions to help groups support veterans who have hearing loss or tinnitus.
