Deafness Research UK is a medical charity for deaf and hard of hearing people. We exist to secure radical improvements in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of all forms of hearing impairment. Ultimately, our aim is to find cures for these distressing and neglected disabilities. Supported entirely by voluntary contributions, Deafness Research UK aims to:
- support high quality medical and scientific research, which meet the needs of hearing impaired people and the research community
- educate people about medical issues relating to deafness and other hearing problems, offering information and advice based upon the most up-to-date and reliable evidence available
To date, Deafness Research UK has awarded over £10 million in research grants and since its Information & Advice Service was launched in 2003, it has helped almost one and a quarter million people.
