Tinnitus patients in Kent are being offered the help of a new support group so they can meet others with the condition and access information.
Staff and volunteers at HiKent, the county's charity for deaf and hard of hearing people, are launching the group in partnership with the British Tinnitus Association.

We are hoping that the group will allow people with tinnitus to meet together and share experiences. There's already a group for people with tinnitus in Canterbury, but nothing for people in mid Kent.
We know that some people really struggle with tinnitus and worry that it can't be cured, while others have found ways of coping with it.
The group is just starting so it will be new to all of us. We're hoping to keep it quite informal, so do come along for a cuppa and a chat, and let us know how you'd like the group to develop.
