In addition to Deaf and Hard of Hearing Clubs there are a range of services availble across both Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin to support those with hearing impairment and their families. Local provision may vary so check what is going on in your area.

Services include:

  • Lip reading classes – beginner classes arranged by Audiology at SATH, higher level classes occasionally offered by WEA.
  • Effective Hearing Programmes – arranged by Shropshire RCC at various venues across the county.
  • Home visits from Volunteer support workers – organised by Shropshire RCC following patient referrals from Audiology at SATH
  • Technical officers – advice and assessment for specialist equipment,a service provided separately by both Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin Councils.

Further details of these services will be added as they are received.
