Action on Hearing Loss – Supporting Veterans


This is a free service, funded through the Aged Veterans Fund initiated by the Chancellor using LIBOR money. 



Practical support and information for older veterans who are deaf or have hearing loss

How can we help you?

If you were born before 1950 and have served in the armed forces, this service is for you. As a national hearing loss charity, we understand that coping with hearing loss can often create difficulties for you and those around you. We want to help veterans to address and manage their hearing loss through:

Hearing checks

Our outreach workers will be able to perform a hearing check for you to determine whether you have a hearing loss and if you do, provide information on what to do next.

Hearing aid maintenance

We can help you make the most of your hearing aids and keep them working to their full potential. We will do this by:

Information and Advice

We will provide a bespoke package of information to veterans, their partners, carers and dependents to help veterans manage their hearing loss. This can be done through individual visits or to groups of veterans. Information topics will include:

Advice to community organisations

We want veterans to be able to engage and participate in activities in their community. To encourage this we will raise awareness and work with community organisations to ensure they are fully accessible and have the right communication tools to provide for veterans with hearing loss.
