Hear 2 Work

 

"Welcome to Hear 2 Work, a new blog dedicated to helping people with hearing loss, manage day-to-day at work. With an ageing population, and one that also has to work longer, there will be an increasing number of adults in the workplace who have some degree of hearing loss. This blog is intended for them, designed to share advice and experiences that can help to make working life easier, being solutions focused, rather than problem focused.
 
The blog will include personal experiences as well as occasional updates on the latest research and developments, policies, products and gadgets that can help to make life at work more manageable.  Readers are encouraged to contribute and share their experiences to help others."

The Deaf not stupid Facebook page provides an area where people who are deaf or hard of hearing can read reviews about, and comment on products, resources and organisations that are of specific use to them. Run by an experienced professional journalist (himself severely deaf), it also features news items of interest, along with cartoons, videos, discussions and anything else that seems appropriate including, whenever possible, money saving offers.

Pardon? - Closed Group

Access to communication for all.  

"The needs of deaf and HOH people are diverse. We listen if we have residual hearing, we lipread, we use body language, gesture and facial expression. We may use hearing aids, including CI and BAHA. Some use a sign language like BSL but most will use other communication methods such as speech to text, lipspeakers, personal listeners/loops, communicator guides, cued speech and more. All of us seem to have issues with Access to Communication whether it is for work or for social purposes that we need to address as a group. There are many other issues in access to services, information and facilities that also need to be debated and acted upon."

Rainbox Tubes

Colourful tubing for all occasions!

A few words from the owner, Elouise:

"With the help of a wonderful group on Facebook, I learnt to take pride in my hearing loss and began to decorate my hearing aids in the way I wanted them to look. I quickly realised that the more confident I became about my deafness, the more confident others became about accepting me and asking about it rather than shying away and avoiding me.

This is why I set up Rainbow Tubes. There's an increasing number of accessories available for personalising hearing devices, but one which wasn't readily available was coloured tubing. Although larger companies have the ability to produce them, the tubes are often expensive, one size, have to be bought in bulk (usually only by companies), and are very limited in colour range. With Rainbow Tubes, each customer can order the colours they want (including the very popular pink and purple) at an affordable price whilst benefiting from a fast and friendly service"

Tubetastic Pimps

Helping Adults & Children Be Proud Of Wearing Hearing Aids & CI's.

A few words from the owner, Sarah Smith:

"In 2012 I helped create a group on Facebook to help pimp their Hearing Aids & CI's. Through this group people started to create their own charms to wear. I started to make them for my daughter and the business started from there.

In July 2013 I started the Etsy shop to help spread the word to those who are either don't have facebook or are unable to go on Facebook.

As the business has grown so has the range, from just charms, to storage pouches and safety clips."
