Did you know, 1 in 5 people are deaf or have hearing loss?
The chances are, up until the point, you may not have even been aware that someone you know or interact with on a regular basis has hearing loss.
Part of the reason you may not know is because hearing loss can be very invisible and people living with hearing loss are not just listening to you, they are lip reading. However recently, we have had to stand out and make our needs know.
This large community has been severely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic due to the (much needed and completely necessary) use of facemasks. We all want to keep each other safe, and we also all want to be able to have clarity in communication
We are thrilled your business or place of work would like to be involved. By becoming involved in #ClarityInCommunication, you are making a positive impact on your community and your business will be listed on our Friends page, so that our community know.
