Hearing Dogs for Deaf People

Hearing Dogs for Deaf People is a national charity and centre of excellence in training hearing dogs to alert deaf people to everyday sounds and danger signals in the home, work place and in public buildings.

 

Hearing Dogs was launched at the world famous Crufts dog show in 1982. Since then we have created nearly 2,000 life-changing partnerships between deaf people and hearing dogs in the UK. There are currently almost 1000 working partnerships in the country.

 

We train dogs to alert deaf children and adults to important household sounds and danger signals such as the alarm clock, doorbell, telephone and smoke alarm – providing independence, confidence and valuable companionship. Hearing dogs are easily recognisable by their distinctive burgundy jacket and lead slips, which helps to identify the recipient’s otherwise ‘invisible’ disability, bringing increased peace of mind for the deaf person. Deafness can be a very isolating and lonely disability. A hearing dog can offer a life-transforming practical alternative to technical equipment – particularly for those deaf people who find such equipment restricting – with the added benefit of giving the recipient greater independence, increased confidence, companionship and a feeling of security.

 

Gifts in wills play a vital role in our work. In fact they account for 50% of our income. If we can increase the amount donated through legacies we can increase the number of hearing dogs available. That’s why leaving us a gift in your will could be so powerful.
