Hearing Aid Project

Hearing Aids -

  • Do you have a hearing aid?
  • Don’t really want to use it?
  • Not sure how to use it?
  • We can help!

If you are a Harrow resident, have an NHS hearing aid and would like to talk to somebody about how to use, keep it clean and change batteries or just to build your confidence……….

Harrow Association of Disabled people are offering a free Hearing Aid advice service. If you were given a hearing aid but haven’t worn it and think you might like to try we can help you.

We have Deaf Awareness and Basic Hearing aid maintenance training courses available free to both professionals and groups.
