Old name, new purpose: why we’ve gone back to RNID

Get help with tinnitus

We run local tinnitus support services in Northern Ireland and south-east England.

If you live in other areas of the UK and need tinnitus information and support, please contact our national Tinnitus Helpline.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak means we’ve paused our face-to-face appointments, but local advisers are still here to help remotely if you have any questions about tinnitus.

What people say about our support

“The webinar provided different coping strategies and it was led by people who have experienced tinnitus themselves. I don’t know where I’d be now if I hadn’t got that support; the webinar gave me a toolkit to help me through.”
