Hearing Loss Cornwall has links with other UK specialist services for the hard of hearing but remains a small independent charity.
We act as an umbrella for Deaf and Hard of Hearing clubs and groups and we aim to continue to create stronger links for our d/Deaf community, to help them strengthen their presence and be able to enjoy a less isolated life.
Hearing Loss Cornwall also works in liaison with other voluntary sector organisations on any projects that will benefit our community and we are happy to share in the preparation of any events or funding bids that will have a positive impact on our community. Find out how we may be able to help!
Please find Mental Health and Wellbeing Guide - and other useful resources in Cornwall for deaf people.

Hearing Loss Cornwall aims to help retailers, businesses and organisations who know that they should provide communication support under The Equality Act 2010, but aren’t quite there at being “Deaf Aware”.
It is very difficult for a person with communication difficulties to make their needs known and many organisations remain unaware of their duty of care. We are there to ensure that hearing loop systems aren’t left unplugged, in a box or inaccessible!
Please contact Hearing Loss Cornwall direct, if you know of someone Deaf who may need information or advice. Or find out about our Deaf Awareness Trainings or find some resources to help d/Deaf Children and Young People
