Action on Hearing Loss NI

We've developed a range of support services to meet the needs of local people who are deaf, have a hearing loss or tinnitus.

You can book communication support, get help with your hearing aid, or find information on tinnitus.

We have a large team of experienced and understanding staff and volunteers who are skilled in working with people who are deaf, have a hearing loss or tinnitus at a range of locations across Northern Ireland.


  • Hear to Help - hearing aid support - Do you live in Northern Ireland and need help with your NHS hearing aids? Our Hear to Help volunteers can provide free advice and support.
  • Hear to Meet - befriending service - Hearing Loss and deafness can be isolating, so we have set up a network of social groups to help reduce isolation and distress.
  • Communication support - Are you looking for communication support? Find out how to choose the best form of support and how to book communication support.
  • Care and support - Find out how we can support you to find services that meet your needs. We help service providers, service users and professionals.
  • Deaf Awareness for Younger People - Deaf Awareness for Young people (D.A.Y.) aims to reach out to schools and youth groups to raise awareness of hearing loss and deafness.
  • Sensory Engagement Programme (SEP) - If you live in the border counties and have a hearing loss, we can help you access key services, contact service providers and provide support and guidance
  • Employment support in Northern Ireland - Are you deaf or do you have a hearing loss? Our Employability Programme for Deaf People (EPDP) is designed to guide and support you.
