Hear to Inform & Connect in Scotland

by Action on Hearing Loss Scotland Claimed

Hear to Inform and Connect is helping to ensure older people feel better informed about how to manage their hearing loss and better connected with their local communities, families and friends.

We’re working hard to reach older people who are isolated and have little access to information about hearing loss, tinnitus, products and equipment, services and benefits. We’re also doing lots of work to engage with older people from a diverse range of backgrounds and cultures, to ensure that our information service is more accessible for more people.

Our team of Information Officers and trained volunteers provide information in community settings across Scotland. They also work with care homes, community groups and local organisations that provide services or support for older people with hearing loss, to help them make their services more accessible and inclusive.

Our Information Officers and volunteers:

- deliver information stands in a range of community and health settings such as libraries, leisure centres, GP surgeries and hospitals;
- give talks to care homes, local community groups and organisations on deaf awareness, equipment, communication and Action on Hearing Loss services and campaigns
- carry out basic hearing screenings using a hand-held screener to identify whether further assessment by a hearing professional is required
- signpost to other local services for older people who are deaf or have hearing loss.
