Start date: Ongoing

What will I be doing?

  • Help staff to prepare and set up the venue before our tinnitus groups
  • Provide a friendly welcome to group members as they arrive at the meetup, directing them to the correct room
  • Serve teas and coffees to group members throughout the meetup
  • Listen, chat and engage with group members and their friends and family
  • Share your own experiences of deafness, tinnitus or hearing loss
  • Promote the Hear to Meet group in your local area

What impact will this have?

  • Our social coffee mornings make a huge difference to people who may have become isolated by hearing loss.
  • We depend on our fantastic volunteers to help us run this important service as not everyone realises the impact that losing your hearing can have on your social life
  • Help to build stronger communities and combat loneliness
