Action on Hearing Loss - Blackness Library drop-in sessions

Yesterday morning, I had the pleasure of meeting Michelle Donoghue who, on behalf of Action on Hearing Loss, is providing a drop-in session at Blackness Library once a month on Saturdays from 10am to 11.30am, one of a number of drop-in facilities across the city, aimed at assisting people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

This free service gives advice on caring for and getting used to hearing aids, fits new batteries and tubing and gives information on both services and equipment available.

It is a great service and Michelle provides a friendly, professional and free service.   The drop-in sessions at Blackness Library for the remainder of 2014 are on 30th August, 27th September, 25th October, 29th November and 20th December.

Action on Hearing Loss is also looking for volunteers - no experience necessary and full training will be given.    

You can find out more about the drop-in service and volunteering opportunities by contacting Michelle at Tayside Deaf Hub on 201073.
