EASTBOURNE MP Caroline Ansell says it was ‘grand ‘ to visit East Sussex Hearing.

East Sussex Hearing is a small independent charity based in Eastbourne. It has been serving the deaf, deafened, deafblind and hard of hearing community throughout East Sussex for over 20 years.

Caroline said: “The pandemic has hit audiology services hard but it was great to see how much work has continued throughout the pandemic with face to face support having restarted.

What is more shocking is that around 1 in 6 people have hearing loss so it is good to know that there are services here to support them.

Support can go much wider than that however and a range of devices to improve everyday hearing for the phone or TV are important, but critically too is equipment to hear smoke alarms.

This could save a life.”
