Action on Hearing Loss is the new name for RNID. They're working for a world where hearing loss doesn't limit or label people, where tinnitus is silenced and where people value and look after their hearing. They are experts in providing support for people with hearing loss and tinnitus, they provide day-to-day care for people who are deaf and have additional needs, and they supply communication services and training, as well as offering practical advice to help people protect their hearing. Their helpline offers free confidential and impartial information on a whole range of subjects relating to deafness, hearing loss and tinnitus.
If you're worried about your hearing you can also take their free online and telephone hearing check.
