It’s only a few days now until Hearing Loop Awareness Week gets underway. Will you be participating? If you can, please do. It doesn’t need to take much time and it is straightforward to get involved.
We’re looking for people in towns and cities across the UK to check if there are working hearing loops in venues and facilities in their local area. This includes: shops, banks, GP surgeries, libraries, churches, theatres and so on. You can check one venue or lots.
Each venue you check should take you only 10 minutes or so.
You’ll find more information and a copy of the short form you should complete when you visit a venue on our website. Contact our Helpdesk if you need more information – [email protected]
