    Group aims

    Hearing Dogs for Deaf People is a national charity and centre of excellence in training hearing dogs to alert deaf people to everyday household sounds and danger signals in the home, work place and in public buildings.

    Nearly nine million of the UK population experience some degree of hearing loss. That’s one person in every seven. Over half a million are severely or profoundly deaf. We want to help as many of these people as possible by creating life-changing partnerships between deaf people and specially trained hearing dogs.

    There are lots of inspirational stories and photos on the website which you can explore at your leisure, but here are the 8 most important things you might like to know.

    1. We train clever dogs to help deaf people

    2. Hearing dogs help deaf people reconnect with life

    3. Our dogs have even saved lives

    4. We’ve helped thousands of deaf people so far, and we aim to help many more

    5. We put a lot of time and thought into matching a hearing dog with a deaf person

    6. Our staff and volunteers are really passionate

    7. We have a free e-newsletter that we send to 14,000 of our friends

    8. You can help us change even more lives – and it’s really easy

    How you can help

    We can only achieve this thanks to our loyal supporters who give money, time and effort to help us create incredible hearing dogs.
