Tinnitus

RNID is the national charity supporting the 12 million people in the UK who are deaf, have hearing loss or tinnitus. Together, we will end the discrimination faced by our communities, help people hear better now and fund world-class research to restore hearing and silence tinnitus. Our communities are huge: 1 in 5 adults in the UK are deaf, have hearing loss or tinnitus. If our work doesn’t directly impact you, it will almost certainly be making a difference for someone you know and love. We work with our communities and partners across health, employment, research, government and more to change life for the better.

The cornerstones of the BDA are language. Community, identity, heritage of deaf people and representation of Deaf peoples needs, aspirations, rights and responsibilities.  As a member-led organisation, our work is focused on achieving equality for Deaf people through community empowerment, membership and campaigning. Working with local Deaf and BSL Communities is crucial to the success of BDA campaigns and creates opportunities for Deaf people to develop, participate and contribute in wider society.

National Deaf Children’s Society

We believe that Deaf children can do anything other children can do, given early diagnosis and the right support from the start.  Deaf children should be involved in decisions which affect them at as early an age as possible.  Families are the most important influence on deaf children and young people, and need clear, balanced information to make informed choices.  Effective language and communication skills lie at the hear t of deaf children and young people’s social, emotional and intellectual development.  Deaf children should be valued by society and have the same opportunities as any other child.

We want a world where no one suffers from tinnitus.  That is a powerful statement and one we believe is achievable.  It is achievable now, to an extent that there are management tools and methods available to enable some not to 'suffer'.

SignHealth is a charity dedicated to making sure Deaf people get the same sort of access as hearing people to healthcare and health information.  At the moment Deaf people generally have poorer health than hearing people, simply because access to medical services and health information isn’t routinely provided in sign language.  We think it’s time for change.
