People living with hearing loss

Man and woman looking at a hearing aid

"I was struggling to follow people when they were talking. Thanks to help from the lovely staff at JDA's Hearing Connect I am now able to join in with chats around the dinner table." 

40% of people over 50 have a hearing loss. It takes people on average 11 years to seek help but the earlier you receive it, the better. 

Almost everyone who reads this will face the trauma of hearing loss at some time in their lives – or have a loved one who will.

If you have a hearing loss, our aim is to enable your home, work and social life to be as independent and fulfilled as possible.

Under the brand Hearing Connect, we offer a range of services to enable you to become more informed, more socially active, more confident and thereby more connected to those around you.

Following numerous requests on how best to ensure that places of worship and community centres are accessible to people with a hearing loss, we have produced a document containing advice and information on the matter.  Please click on the link below to open it.
