Hearing Hub service launches in Buckinghamshire
Hearing Hub service launches

Hearing Link launched its new Hearing Hub service this month (September) in Buckinghamshire.

The Hearing Hub offers information and advice on communication and technology that could support your hearing day-to-day.

The service is led by our volunteers who all have a sensitive understanding of hearing loss and will help you to find the right product or support that is best suited to your individual needs. We'll also show you how to get the best out of it.

The Hearing Hub will be open on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month between 1pm and 4pm. It is based at The Grange Restaurant & Cafe in Saunderton - the home of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

We encourage customers to book appointments in advance to allow for personal one-to-one time uninterrupted with our volunteers. Appointments typically last 40 minutes and are held in a quiet and supportive area away from the restaurant environment.

To book your appointment, please email helpdesk@hearinglink.org or Tel/SMS 07725 742608.

If you would like to know more about the equipment and communication resources we have available to buy visit our online shop.
