RNID is the charity making life fully inclusive for deaf people and those with hearing loss or tinnitus. They connect people to practical advice and pioneer new treatments for hearing loss and tinnitus.
In the UK, 1 in 5 adults are deaf or have hearing loss, and 1 in 8 have tinnitus.
Despite that, many people face the stigma of being treated as stupid, shouted at, or made fun of. There’s a frustrating lack of patience, empathy and understanding. Barriers to work, travel, socialising and communication take a toll on self-esteem and mental wellbeing, and cause social isolation. Day-to-day life is more difficult – and this needs to stop.
RNID demands a future where there are life-changing treatments for those who need and want them. They are working towards preventing hearing loss, restoring the hearing of those who have lost it and silencing tinnitus.
