Lifeline - Hearing Dogs for Deaf People

TV presenter, writer and adventurer Ben Fogle makes an appeal on behalf of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, a charity offering greater independence, confidence and companionship to deaf people by providing specially trained dogs to alert them to everyday sounds and danger signals.

The film features Sue who has been severely deaf for most of her life. Without her family around to help her she became very isolated and depressed. But since the charity paired her with hearing dog Jasmine her life has completely changed. Jasmine not only helps Sue with alarms and signals but she has increased her self-confidence too.
