We are active campaigners for SMS text numbers to be available for people that are unable to use the phone. We also want advice and easy access to aids and equipment for people who are deafened or hard of hearing, including support with installation, maintenance and using the equipment.
We play an important role in strengthening the links between health and social care, such as setting up access to social care and voluntary sector support via audiology clinics.
Several members of the Surrey Hard of Hearing Forum are also involved in the LET’S HEAR SURREY initiative to promote the importance of working hearing loops being available in all public buildings, shops, banks, pharmacies etc.
Anybody that is hard of hearing or deafened. Carers of people that are hard of hearing or deafened are welcome to join too.
We meet either virtually or in person meeting four times a year. Each meeting is approximately 2 hours.
All you need is a passion for improving services.
You can get involved in helping to shape the future of services for people who are hard or hearing or deafened. It’s also an opportunity to meet new people and share experiences.
If you are interested in joining the group or would like to attend one meeting to find out more, we’d love you to get in touch. Everybody is always welcome.
