Speech and Hearing
Helping those who are hearing impaired within Lions Clubs dates back to an initiative, the Hearing Trust, that was set up by members in East Anglia in 2003. This led to the formation of a national project, the Hearing Forum which enables deaf aware training to be provided to members of the hearing community throughout the British Isles and Ireland, alongside resources that help improve the quality of life of deaf people.
Lions Clubs collect unwanted, or broken, analogue and digital hearing aids and audiological equipment from individuals, audiologists, hearing retail outlets and hospitals. Since May 2015, Lions have collected almost 171,000 hearing aids and ancillary items. Dr Michael Nolan receives donations for sorting and refurbishment. Adults and children with hearing impairment whose lives have been transformed after receiving recycled hearing equipment live in countries including: Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Peru, Senegal, Gambia, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Lesotho, Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi, Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan, South Sudan, Zanzibar, Madagascar, Ukraine, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Burma, Cambodia, China, Philippines, Djibouti and Papua New Guinea. You can send hearing aids for recycling to Dr Michael Nolan Lumb Gaps Barn Haslingden Old Road Rossendale BB4 8TT
