Action on Hearing Loss

RNID aims to support UK\'s 9 million deaf and hard of hearing people by breaking down barriers to opportunity and fulfilment. Our vision is \'A world where deafness or hearing loss do not limit or determine opportunity and where people value their hearing'. Our activities revolve around three strategic themes: ensuring the rights and opportunities for deaf and hard of hearing people to lead a full life:promoting hearing health, preventing hearing loss, curing deafness: removing the stigma of deafness.
RNID supports its beneficiary group in a number of ways, for example: campaigning and lobbying to change the laws and government policies: providing information and raising awareness of deafness, hearing loss and tinnitus: training courses and consultancy on deafness and disability: communication services including sign language interpreters, lip-speakers, speech-to-text operators: training of interpreters and speech-to-text operators: seeking lasting change in education for deaf children and young people: employment programmes to help deaf people into work: residential and community services for deaf people with special needs: typetalk, the national telephone relay service for deaf and hard of hearing people: equipment and products for deaf and hard of hearing people: social, medical and technical research.
RNID has 97 years experience of supporting deaf and hard of hearing people throughout the UK.
