Posted on June 30, 2017


National charity Action on Hearing Loss is inviting people with hearing loss to take part in their focus groups this July to share their experiences and help shape the charity’s future.

Action on Hearing Loss is the UK’s largest charity representing people with hearing loss, deafness and tinnitus and is currently planning the next five years of its work.

The focus groups which include two BSL focus groups, will take place at the charity’s headquarters, 1-3 Highbury Station Road, London, N1 1SE, will help gather research for their new five-year organisational strategy.

The charity wants to hear people’s views on what it is like to live with hearing loss, deafness or tinnitus, and what would have the greatest impact on their life.
