Supporting Deaf people and those with acquired hearing difficulties to live independent lives

Living with hearing loss can be isolating. The difficulties faced with communication can lead to feelings of loneliness and cause people to become disengaged. Hearing loss is not just about the inability to hear, it is also about the daily struggles a person experiences communicating with those around them, and the impact this has on a persons' wellbeing.

At WNDA our goal is to support the Deaf community and those with acquired hearing difficulties. We provide a broad variety of social activities, providing opportunities to engage with others facing the same challenges; this will help eliminate any feelings of isolation and help you feel part of a community.

Our social groups and activities are returning! See below for more information, or SIGN UP TO OUR NEWSLETTER to be the first to find out what exciting activities are happening in our community
