Coping with hearing loss in a hearing world

Soundz Off Directory

Charities

Soundz Off recognises the essential role that charities play in providing help and support to those with hearing loss and their families.  However, charities have to compete for funding so people with hearing loss may not always find out about every service available if they contact just one organisation.  We aim to list all hearing loss charities on this page to help you explore a wider range of options.

There is a huge amount of information already out there to help you and we constantly update our list to bring you links to the latest information, equipment and news about all things hard of hearing (HoH). We hope you find the Directory useful and if you have any useful links that you'd like us to add, please contact us.
