The Chime Hearing Foundation

2nd May 2019

One in every six adults in the UK, are deaf or have a hearing loss - that’s over 10 million people! Hearing loss is an invisible life-changing condition that affects lives 24/7 and can affect relationships, education and job prospects.

The Chime Hearing Foundation

We set up The Chime Hearing Foundation to help relieve those who suffer from hearing loss through the provision of grants or other financial assistance and the provision of equipment and facilities to enhance their hearing. The charity runs as a separate entity to Chime Social Enterprise but shares the same values, both united in providing a specialist hearing service in the South West.

Our ambition is to make enhanced hearing accessible to people with hearing loss, deafness or tinnitus. The charity helps to provide hearing accessories and services that support people where NHS services are not possible. For example, The Roger Select allows the user to improve their experience in meetings or with several people talking around a table and the TV link allows someone with hearing loss to switch off the subtitles on their TV and have the audio streamed directly to their hearing aid.

As a charity, we are able to offer these accessories through donations for those in need, so if you would like to make a donation or if you have any questions regarding The Chime Hearing Foundation please contact Jonathan Parsons via jonathan.parsons@nhs.net or 01392 402225.
