We are a volunteer organisation, run by hearing impaired people.

We hold three public forum meetings each year, focusing on issues related to hearing impairment. These meetings are open to anyone who has a hearing impairment, their families and anyone else who is interested.  We have interesting speakers and there is an opportunity for discussion over coffee and tea. We have a BSL interpreter at all forums, together with a loop system operating for hearing aid users. The venues we use all have parking and disabled facilities.

We run a Deaf Aware stall which is taken to various venues around the county. The stall has information boards and leaflets to give away. It is usually staffed by hearing impaired volunteers who have first hand experience of the problems faced.

We are the official body representing Deaf and hearing impaired people in consultations with the NHS and the Unitary Councils in Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin.
