The Facts About Hearing

For many people losing their hearing is simply a part of getting older, so they settle into their condition with relative ease. For others it can be the result of an unforeseeable incident or ongoing exposure to a noisy environment, or even an underlying congenital condition that will most probably go unnoticed for years.

Whichever the case, hearing loss remains a prominent and highly preventable condition for much of the UK’s adult population. We believe it is a lack of understanding that is causing many people to suffer unknowingly and hope that by providing as much information and support as possible, sufferers will take action towards a positive future for their hearing.
