  • want to make better use of your hearing aids?
  • want better access to services and equipment?

Effective Hearing Programmes (EHP’s) are one day workshops to help you adjust to having a hearing impairment. Whether or not you wear a hearing aid, you are welcome to attend and we encourage people to bring a family member or friend as the course will also be relevant to them. Some people find wearing a hearing aid very frustrating, and it can take them some time to feel comfortable and confident. Effective Hearing Programmes gives you a chance to share experiences, challenges and successes with others in similar situations. All our EHP tutors have personal experience of hearing loss.

The Course covers:

  • How the Ear works.
  • Tinnitus & Coping strategies.
  • How to cope in different day to day situations.
  • Services available to people with hearing loss in Shropshire.
  • Information about the equipment available to help you with your hearing loss.
  • Access to work and the Equality Act 2010.
  • A brief insight into lip-reading and courses available locally.

The programme will run from 9.30 am to 1 pm on 7th March & 21st March but all other dates will be 10 am to 4 pm. Complimentary drinks are provided.
