Hearing Dogs for Deaf People

Nearly 10 million people in the UK experience some degree of hearing loss. That's one person in every six. Over half a million are severely or profoundly deaf. We want to help as many of these people as possible by creating life-changing partnerships between deaf people and specially trained hearing dogs.

Our mission is to offer greater independence, confidence and companionship to deaf people by providing dogs trained to alert them to chosen everyday sounds. We train hearing dogs to alert deaf people to select household sounds and danger signals in the home, work place and in public buildings - providing a life-changing level of independence, confidence and companionship.

The partnership between a deaf person and hearing dog truly is life-changing, from the practical assistance through to the therapeutic and social benefits. In their own words, hearing dog recipients describe the difference their dog has made to their life.

For further information please contact us or visit our website. We always require volunteers so if you have some spare time please do contact us.
