Hearing loss and impairment affects nearly nine million people
Hearing loss and impairment affects nearly nine million people, that’s one in seven in the British Isles, and often leads to isolation and a reduced quality of life. Over 650,000 of these people are severely or profoundly deaf and could have their lives transformed by a hearing dog.
Hearing Dogs for Deaf People train dogs to become the ‘ears’ of deaf people. This enables them to live lives with improved security, confidence and independence, something which would otherwise be denied them by this ‘invisible’ disability. It costs a minimum of £50,000 to train one of these amazing dogs, which are given free of charge, and specially matched, to any person who meets the required criteria within the Bailiwick of Guernsey’.
Anyone who thinks they would benefit from a Hearing Dog should first discuss with their hearing aid provider and then contact Application Enquiries at Hearing Dogs for Deaf People on telephone number 01844 348 111 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Hearing Dogs for Deaf People (Guernsey Branch) is a Guernsey Registered Charity – a fund raising organisation only, raising money towards the cost of sourcing, training and placing hearing dogs with beneficiaries in Guernsey.
