Action on Hearing Loss is running two new support sessions for NHS hearing aid users in Belfast during August.

The first session will take place on Thursday 22nd August from 10am – 12pm at Orangefield Presbyterian Church, 464 Castlereagh Road, BT5 6BH.

The second session will take place on Thursday 29th August from 5pm – 7pm at Action on Hearing Loss, Harvester House, 4-8 Adelaide Street BT2 8GA.

The Hearing Aid User Support Service is funded by the Health & Social Care Board and run by trained volunteers. At the drop in sessions, volunteers provide new batteries and ear mould tubing; information on how to use and clean your hearing aids; and signposting to other services that can help you.

You can also have your hearing checked, but it should be noted this is not a hearing test.

For more information contact Iain Irvine, Operations Officer at Action on Hearing Loss, on 028 9023 9619, or email iain.irvine@hearingloss.org.uk. Action on Hearing Loss runs multiple support sessions throughout Belfast and the rest of Northern Ireland.
