National Trust pledges its support
The National Trust is backing ‘Hearing Loop Awareness Week’ a UK-wide campaign by charity Hearing Link which is taking place this week (2-8 November).
‘Hearing Loop Awareness Week’ aims to raise greater awareness and understanding of hearing loops – a vital piece of technology for two million hearing aid users in the UK. It is part of a wider initiative called ‘Let’s Loop the UK’ which has set up projects in 10 communities across the country and is partnered by Rotary International.
Hearing loops which are commonly found in banks, shops, libraries, pharmacies and other public buildings provide valuable communication support for hearing aid users by cutting out background noise and delivering sound directly into the aid.
Throughout 2015, The National Trust has been working in partnership with Hearing Link to improve and increase the provision of hearing loops at its properties across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
