Action on Hearing Loss

Action on Hearing Loss


Action on Hearing Loss (formerly RNID) is the largest UK charity helping people who are confronting deafness, tinnitus and hearing loss.


We are working for a world where hearing loss doesn’t limit or label people, where tinnitus is silenced and where people value and look after their hearing.


In Northern Ireland, 300,000 people have hearing loss, 70,000 people have hearing aids and 275,000 people have tinnitus - with around 9,500 severely affected.


We deliver a wide range of support services across Northern Ireland including Information, Hearing Aid User Support, Tinnitus Support and Employment Support. We also run exciting fundraising events and engaging campaigns and are always keen to welcome new volunteers!


We have offices in Derry/Londonderry and Belfast.



For more information, you can contact us on 028 9023 9619 (phone), 028 9024 9462 (textphone), email or visit
