Hearing Loss Cornwall are delighted to have received funding from the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group, to enable us to take our "Hear Me, I'm Here" project over to the Isles of Scilly.
Deafness is extremely isolating and the Isles of Scilly is also geographically isolated. Working alongside the audiology team from Royal Cornwall Hospital Treliske, we are proposing to hold an outreach event on St. Mary's. We hope to encourage local people, young and old to learn about how they can protect their hearing or benefit from assistive listening devices if they already have some hearing loss.
This project aims to inform and offer support and signposting on the topic of hearing loss. While 1 in 5 people in the Duchy are affected, sometimes profoundly, by this condition, the subject is often ignored, forgotten or misunderstood.
Our team looks forward to getting over there as soon as circumstances allow!
