Hearing Dogs for Deaf People offer greater confidence, independence and companionship to deaf people by providing dogs trained to alert them to essential sounds and danger signals that hearing people take for granted, such as the alarm clock, doorbell and fire alarm.

Deafness is an invisible disability and can be very isolating. Hearing dogs not only offer the practical assistance of alerting to sounds but also provide emotional support which helps relieve the stress and loneliness that deafness can bring and help the deaf person reconnect with life and feel part of their community again.

To find out more about our life changing work why not join us for a tour of our Beatrice Wright Training Centre in Bielby just outside of Pocklington East Yorkshire?   Our tours take place on a Thursday afternoon from 2.00pm to 4.00pm and include a presentation about our work, a live demonstration, a tour of our training facilities and tea and cake. £5 per person and booking is essential. To find out more visit our website www.hearingdogs.org.uk/support/tours/ or call Lucy Ward (Community Fundraising Manager - Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire & North East) on 07769 901292.
