Surrey Forum For People Who Are Hard Of Hearing Or Deafened

One of the main priorities of this group is to Increase awareness in the community and in health and social care staff about hearing loss and the impact this has on people’s lives. They campaign for SMS Text numbers to be available for people who cannot use the phone and are also strengthening the links between health and social care, such as access to social care and voluntary sector support through audiology clinics. They also want advice and easy access to aids and equipment for people who are deafened or hard of hearing, including the installation, maintenance and training to use the equipment.

Several members of the Surrey Hard of Hearing Forum are also involved in the LET’S LOOP SURREY initiative to promote the importance of working hearing loops being available in all public buildings, shops, banks, pharmacies etc.

They have produced posters to raise awareness of this.
