New dates announced for LinkUp groups
New dates announced for LinkUp groups

We are delighted to announce more dates for LinkUp groups in 2018.

Our next courses will take place on the following confirmed dates and locations:

  • 21st-23rd September (Buckinghamshire)
  • 26th-28th October (Edinburgh)
  • 23rd-25th November (Northern Ireland)

If you are struggling to manage your hearing and would find it helpful to share your experiences with like-minded people, then get in touch.

LinkUps are led by experienced volunteers who have a sensitive understanding of what it means to live with hearing loss, many of whom also have personal experience. These courses aim to give you, a partner, family member or friend the information to help you each better manage the changes hearing loss can bring.

Communication support will be made available including hearing loops and Speech-To-Text-Reporting (STTR) where you can follow what is being said on a screen. Accommodation and meals are provided. All you need to cover is your own travel costs.

We’ll be delivering our highly-regarded LinkUps on a regular basis across the UK, offering an opportunity for you to work with others over two days to find ways to live better with your hearing.

To find out more about these LinkUps and whether you will find them helpful, email helpdesk@hearinglink.org.

 
Mindfulness for tinnitus - guest blog

Read our guest blog on Mindfulness for Tinnitus, written by Salman Chatta (pictured), a freelance writer and audiology student who focuses on personal development. 

Mindfulness is a technique that has been used for thousands of years to gain a sense of peace and happiness. Over the past few decades, a ton of research has come out to support its role in modern healthcare. In a few years time, it may even be common practice for tinnitus clinics to use mindfulness.
