The Norfolk Deaf Association’s (NDA) Hearing Support Service looks after 10,500 Norfolk residents with NHS supplied hearing aids and is encouraging more people to get in touch and use this free service.

More than 124,000 people in Norfolk have some degree of hearing loss. This equates to 1 in 7 people. The NDA Hearing Support Service’s staff and volunteers offer home visits, as well as a mobile clinic, which visits 28 towns and villages throughout Norfolk. There are also nearly 130 community clinics; most of which are for residents at nursing homes and sheltered schemes, but some are open to the general public. The volunteers look after hearing aids, clean and replace tubes, fit ear moulds correctly, replace filters, supply new batteries and provide advice on how to get the most out of hearing aids.

For more information contact Norfolk Deaf Association, on 01603 404440, email nda@norfolkdeaf.org.uk, or visit www.norfolkdeaf.org.uk
