Our Story

Hear Together officially became a registered charity in April 2020. Just as we ‘opened up’, the whole world went into ‘lockdown’ as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Undaunted, our journey began online and we are fast-growing our community of adults, children, their families and the people who work with them.

Our experienced team have worked with deaf and hard-of-hearing people for many years. We are passionate about living well with hearing loss and are strong advocates for the importance of people connecting & communicating so that we can all thrive at home, work and socially.

Our focus is on community-based support and information and social, learning and well-being activities to bring together adults, children and families. We have already created lots of engaging content, are planning virtual events and hope to have our ‘socially-distant’ Hear2Help service up and running soon!

We welcome children and adults with any type of hearing loss and are part of the wider community of organisations working to meet the needs of a range of individuals and their families.

The Hear Together team, including our trustees, have all been involved with The Ear Foundation charity.The Ear Foundation was a driving force in many important changes for deaf people over the past 30 years, not only in the UK, but also internationally. Hear Together is proud to carry forward the legacy of The Ear Foundation.
